This specialty climbing harness is praised for its comfort, safety, and functionality.

The treeMOTION climbing harness is also approved for a total load of 120kg, allowing tree arborists to carry more gear (if needed).
2. Polyethylene Throw Line
Next up on the list of must-have tree climbing supplies is a trusted Polyethylene Throw Line. The SGT KNOTS polyethylene throw line is one of the best tree climbing ropes for various uses. Although light in weight, this water and abrasion-resistant rope features fine braiding 8-15 times stronger than steel and boasts a high tensile strength capable of supporting up to 1,000 pounds. Its flex-fatigue-resistant design makes it a popular arborist rope for lifting and stabilizing slings, plus its vibrant orange color makes it extremely visible in gloomy weather conditions.
3. Arbor Webbing and Stakes
As a professional tree arborist, it’s your job to plant, care for, and maintain tree and plant life. As such, you are responsible for helping manage the growth and development of new tree life and require the right arborist supplies to support your mission. Any professionally trained arborist knows how vital the right arbor webbing can be for a young tree, and we know where you can find the best in the business. SGT KNOTS Arbor Webbing Tie Staking and Guying Kit is a must-have tree arborist supply you’ve got to have in your arsenal of tools. This webbing kit comes with a 20-foot nylon webbing strap and four heavy-duty plastic stakes to hold your young tree in place through various weather conditions.
All you’ll need to do is stake one end of the webbing into the ground, wrap around your tree's trunk above the first branches ( this will prevent the guy-line from slipping), and stake down to the other side. Repeat this process if necessary for your expected weather conditions.
