Tree Climbing



Tree_Service_Bonney_LakeTree climbing is an incredibly dangerous activity, associated with frequent falls from extension ladders on unstable ground, and from brittle branches. Each year, millions of people are injured in falls from trees (American Academic of Pediatrics). These falls have been identified as the second leading cause of death from unintentional injury in the U.S. (American Academic of Pediatrics), underscoring the danger of tree climbing by amateurs. Injuries stem from:

  • Lack of training
  • Lack of equipment
  • Lack of experience
  • Misinformed belief that tree climbing is easy


These dangers should serve as a warning to avoid tree climbing without proper training, experience, and equipment.


Tree Climbing Professionals


Tree_Removal_TacomaAt Knotty Tree Service, we are extensively trained in tree climbing and ask that you put your trust in the tree climbing professionals. For any activity that involves tree climbing, including lowering and removing heavy wood. We use particular tools, ropes, ascenders, and spurs. Trust the tree climbing professionals for:

  • Spur climbing for removals
  • Ascenders for rigging
  • Rope climbing for pruning


We avoid the use of spur climbing on some species, as we do not want to damage the species. Please contact us at Knotty Tree Service if you have a project that requires tree climbing. Leave that activity to the tree climbing professionals.
