If you are an arborist that uses old, worn down, or unsafe supplies you could be placing yourself and those around you in danger if your equipment malfunctions. 

As an arborist, it’s essential to keep your gear and supplies maintained and relevant to protect yourself and keep your work environment safe.

Linemen Climbing Gear

Linemen (or lineworkers) are those individuals who work with electrical power transmissions. They are responsible for maintaining and constructing power lines and they often have to scale poles and tall structures to complete their job.

Linemen require high-quality climbing gear to keep them safe as they do their job. As they are often required to perform maintenance tasks or installations at heights greater than 50-feet. Useful climbing gear for linemen includes sturdy harnesses, insulated hard hats, gaffs, and a climbing rope.

Ascenders and Descenders

No tree climbing equipment kit is complete without adequate ascenders and descenders. Ascenders are used to make scaling a tree easier and safer while descenders are used to help arborists safely reach the ground after scaling a tree. 

Some useful ascending and descending gear includes a deceleration unit, heavy-duty aluminum descender, and a self-tracking rope grab.

Carabiners are used to connect the rope to the gear and are responsible for keeping arborists safe and secure when they are scaling a tree. 

Due to the pivotal part, they play in the safety of a tree climber, it’s important to have high-quality carabiners that are manufactured specifically for tree climbing and arborist work.

As a professional arborist, it’s essential to invest in your supplies and get gear that is both comfortable and effective. When it comes to tree climbing harnesses, there are a lot of uncomfortable or cheaply made products on the market. 

Rather than throw away time, money, and comfort on cheaply-made equipment, get a high-quality harness from the beginning. 

At Greenshields Industrial Supply, we’ve made it our mission to provide tree climbers with high-quality, comfortable harnesses and gear to add to their supplies. As an arborist, you spend hours at a time in harnessing gear, so an ill-fitting or uncomfortable harness is detrimental to a productive work day.

Looking for a sturdy, rigid lanyard? Why not try a premium flipline? 

Fliplines are essentially lanyards that have been made from a steel wire cable encased in a braided arborist rope. The steel wire cable ensures greater stability and provides a more rigid line than other lanyard options. 

Depending on your needs as an arborist, a flipline might be better suited to help you get your job done than a standard lanyard would be. 

From tree cutting climbing gear to tree removal and trimming, Greenshields Industrial Supply offers a wide selection of fliplines to help tree climbers find the gear that they feel most comfortable and confident with.

Lanyards are similar to fliplines but lack the steel wire cable that causes fliplines to be so rigid. For this reason, lanyards are more flexible and lightweight than fliplines. If you’re looking for lightweight, simple gear, to add to your arborist supplies, a lanyard is your best option.

We offer a range of premium tree gear to help arborists do their job with ease.

Spurs, Straps, and Gaffs

At Greenshields Industrial Supply, we offer a huge range of spurs, straps, and gaffs to make the lives of professional arborists easier. 

As an arborist, high-quality spurs are important when it comes to jobs that require tree climbing. If your spurs are old or worn out it’ll make your job as an arborist far more difficult than it needs to be. New, high-quality spurs are what your arborist supplies kit needs in order to be complete. 

Straps are also an important part of your tree climbing gear. They are necessary in order to stay safe on the job and help you meet your deadlines efficiently. 

Gaffs are the sharp spikes that are connected to an arborist's boot which enable them to scale trees and poles safely. It’s necessary to have your gaffs replaced when they wear out in order to ensure safe tree-scaling. Without high-quality gaffs, arborists are at risk of having their feet slip at a dangerous height — which could result in serious injury. This is why having quality-made gaffs is so important.

Here at Greenshields Industrial Supply, all of our tree climbing gear is of premium quality and easy to use. If you are hoping to grow your kit of arborist supplies and make your job more convenient, comfortable, and safe, browse our selection of spurs, straps, and gaffs here.


Lifelines are essential to keep arborists safe as they climb tall trees and work from great heights. The quality and integrity of a lifeline is paramount as it may very well end up saving your life at one point or another. 

Well-made lifelines are an essential piece of gear for arborists and professional tree climbers. While there are a lot of decent lifelines out there, nothing beats a premium-made lifeline that’s been designed with the arborist in mind. 

Here at Greenshields Industrial Supply, we have a wide range of high-quality lifelines of varying thicknesses. Depending on your needs and preferences, our tree climbing gear professionals can match you to the best lifeline for your job.
