Where to buy arborist equipment? As a leading supplier of tree climbing gear in Cheshire, we stock kit crucial for keeping you safe while completing the potentially dangerous tasks in an Arborist’s line of work. We stock arborist equipment from popular brands like Climbing Technology and Marlow Ropes, so regardless of the tools you need, you’ll know you’re purchasing the best gear available.

As an arborist, the job one undertakes can sometimes involve scaling large trees to carry out various aspects of tree surgery. This is of course an extremely dangerous task and should only be completed by a well-trained professional, who is equipped with the necessary equipment to finish the job safely.

A harness specifically recommended for tree climbing work is always recommended, as they usually feature some key differences to rock climbing or recreational harnesses. An arborist harness is designed specifically for work positioning, sometimes called a “sit harness”. They feature a low main attachment point called a “bridge” and include many attachment points for Fliplines or lanyards, as well as other gear. The Simarghu Fire Harness is a revolutionary arborist harness with a floating bridge, allowing for greater lateral movement without twisting on the body.

The Flipline attaches to a side ring of the harness and is used to position yourself securely by placing it around the tree and then clipping it to a side ring on the opposite side of the harness. It is a vital part of climbing a tree and is required to both hold you in position and offer a secondary form of attachment whilst making a cut. A great choice of Flipline is the Marlow Ropes Wirecore Flipline, using a strong galvanised steel wire core and tough polyester cover – providing excellent cut and abrasion resistance.

A climbing rope is often referred to as your “lifeline” and getting a rope specifically designed for arborists and tree climbing is crucial to allow you to ascend or descend a tree safely. A rope is perhaps the most important piece of equipment an arborist has in their kit, as their safety is completely dependant on it functioning as intended. For this reason, we recommend Marlow Ropes Gecko2 Climbing Rope, a class A rope certified against the CE EN 1891 and UKCA test standards.

The prusik loop serves as a friction hitch, allowing you to adjust your position on the climbing rope, effectively allowing you to move longitudinally up or down the tree. We recommend a dedicated prusik loop, as the ropes are designed specifically with high heat resistance. Karabiners are crucial for making secure connections between your climbing rope, prusik loop, and flipline are safely in place.

Wearing the right PPE and using quality machinery is also crucial for carrying out your job safely, and the wide selection available in our online shop and Cheshire based showroom will leave you spoilt for choice.
