This book’s easy-to-follow text with extensive illustrations, unique cross-reference format, and field guide size make it an ideal resource for arborists looking to learn and master knot construction and application for climbing and rigging. This is the third book written for tree care professionals by ISA Certified Arborist® and experienced tree service business owner, Jeff Jepson, author of the bestselling The Tree Climber's Companion and To Fell a Tree: A Complete Guide to Successful Tree Felling and Woodcutting Methods.
As Donald Blair, author of Arborist Equipment, ISA Certified Arborist®, and longtime leader in the tree care industry notes in the foreword for Knots at Work, “Rope is useless and even dangerous without the knowledge and the will to master the skills necessary to select, tie, and use knots properly. Jeff 's book helps to instill the understanding that leads to proficiency.”
