- Oct 31, 2006I worked for a tree trimming service for about 5 years back in my
younger days. Your right, a tree climbing harness (saddle is what
we called them) is a lot more substancial and comfortable than a
regular climbing harness. but keep a close check on your equipment
and double check all knots. this was posted on another list today.
not trying to scare you, just be safe.

is the same as rock climbing gear but the biggest difference is the
harness. WAY more comfortable than a rock one. Part of the
training I received was in hanging a special tree hammock called a
treeboat. These are really cool except they weigh a lot. They can
be found at www.newtribe.com We are thinking of purchasing a few
treeboats next summer so the campers can spend the night in a tree.
The $200+ price tag for something that heavy makes me want to use my
hammock instead for that purpose.
