The Top Five Arborist Knots
The knots that an Arborist is expected to know vary from place to place, and from crew to crew. These knots are used by people earning their living by climbing, sitting on, hanging from, trimming, and felling trees. Many knots must, of course, be the same as those taught elsewhere, e.g., for climbing or search and rescue. They will be covered on this page but not at the top. The five knots listed first will be those most likely to be associated with the work of Arborists.
