BRANDBeaver Tree Publishing

Updated version of the most-used tree climbing guide book.

We recommend this guide for new employees, rec climbers, and tree workers, due to it’s clarity and the high quality of the descriptions and illustrations. The Tree Climber’s Companion is the best-selling pocket reference for tree climbing techniques, equipment selection, and provides instruction on basic methods of entering the tree, working safely, and getting back down. A great guide for beginners who want to get started with the safest and most modern equipment and techniques, or old-timers looking to learn some new tricks.

This guide is one of the best sources for learning about the equipment featured in this catalog. No book can replace hands-on instruction, but the Tree Climber’s Companion makes a great manual to aid in the training of new recruits.

The Tree Climber's Companion by Jeff Jepson has been the best-selling pocket guidebook for tree climbers for decades. Many beginning groundies and climbers got their start learning climbing knots, techniques, and safety concepts from this book.

This book was often given to new hires, and at WesSpur, we included one in every tree climber starter kit. But things have changed A LOT in tree climbing in the last few years. Now this 3rd edition of the Tree Climber's Companion is thoroughly updated and expanded to be up to date with modern tree climbing techniques, equipment, and standards.

The 2nd edition of the Jeff's book was 103 pages... the third edition is 192! The update content includes:

  • The Well Prepared Climber
  • Descending the Tree
  • Working in the Tree
  • “Entering the Tree” expanded to address developments in moving rope systems, stationary rope systems, and climbing with spikes
  • Improved “Knots for Climbing and Rigging” section

The terminology has been updated to reflect changes, and the book now includes a glossary and “Random Advice for the Climbing Life”. Many new illustrations enrich this edition.
