Samson Climbing & Rigging Ropes for Tree Care

With over 130 years of cordage-manufacturing history behind it, Samson moves into the future with advanced research and development. Samson has pioneered many of the tools we take for granted today, such as the first synthetic arborist climbing rope (Arbor-Plex) and high-strength Dyneema lines for replacing steel cable (AmSteel-Blue.) In addition to advances in fiber and braiding technology, Samson's Samthane coating enhances the durability and snag-resistance of their arborist ropes.
