New KK Spacer2

New KK Spacer2

The KK SP2 is milled out of 7 series aluminum and anodized. It is designed to have two functions, firstly it keeps the tip of your spike 5mm further from the instep of your foot, this matches your Spikescender side. It is handy when using short gaffs on a thick-barked tree. Secondly you can attach your HAAS or foot loop straight to it with a small carabiner, eliminating annoying foot loop issues and minimizing the amount of rope needed under a hand ascender or HAAS.

Tragic loss of veteran tree

Tragic loss of veteran tree

A news clip from "the world of trees".

Picture: Its last spray of autumn foliage.

The early hours of 10th March 2010 saw the tragic loss of yet another veteran tree. This time it was not due to development pressure or changes in soil levels or water table. The ancient Ginkgo was uprooted during a snowstorm that blew through Kanagawa during the early hours of that day.

Picture: Ginkgo in full leaf

In 1955 the tree, which stands in front of the main hall of Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine, was been given the status of National Monument of Kanagawa Prefecture. The tree that stood 30metres in height & measured 6.8 meters in circumference is believed to be about 1,000 years old was heard crashing to the ground at 4 ...
Owen Williams wins Welsh Open TCC

Owen Williams wins Welsh Open TCC

My congratulations go out to Owen Williams who, having competed on & off for a number of years finally showed that being a young pup is not necessarily a prerequisite to being at the top of ones game. He took the crown at the Welsh Open TCC a couple of weekends ago with a climb that could only be described as just another day out at work in the trees. The climb showed a level of calm, poise & planning that to be fair stood him out head & shoulders above the other finalists. It's a pleasure to stand side by side with such talent as a long time member of the Treeworker Posse.

Good on ya Bro!

Best wishes,
Nod

New Kit!

New Kit!

2009 brought many new pieces of equipment onto the market place & fortunately Treeworker continue to work alongside quality arbor-ealists to offer first dibs to its customer base on many new products. On that note; we are within weeks of receiving the first batch of the NEW TREEWORKER FRICTION TUBE (pictured) - this is a lowering device that offers degrees of control in rigging scenarios that has only been possible in the past with devices costing twice as many £s. Since the early part of this year we have been honing the device to make it as user friendly & simple as possible, at the same time producing a product that will exceed the Safe Working Load of it's competitors by no small margin. We thought long & hard in the design stage & decided that what the industry needed was a devi ...
NEW Ultro O Locksafe by DMM

NEW Ultro O Locksafe by DMM

Treeworker are pleased to be the first arborist equipment supplies company to bring to the market place the long awaited DMM Ultra O locksafe. A symmetrical carabiner has been an elusive product in the industry due the inherent difficulties in producing such a carabiner that meets industrial load standards. Those clever people at DMM, having spent many hours in production & testing, have finally made the idea a reality with this product of sheer beauty. The pictures above show the hot forging production process.

Equipment configuration within tree climbing systems has been a topic visited by relative few climbers until recent years. The many misalignments & incompatiblilties of equipment choice regularly witnessed are testament to this often avoided subject. Often at the trainin ...
The Summer - Nearly behind us!

The Summer - Nearly behind us!

It seems as if it were just a few moments ago that we were in the midsts of preparing for the Capel Manor Celebration of Trees event & now here we sit with it all behind us, again. Apart from the Irish Tree Climbing Championship all of the years events have also past. Congratulations to all of the climbers who took part, particularly to new & novice visitors to such events.

I think that many people believe that climbing comps are just for the "elite", but seeing & experiencing the joy that many newbie climbers show at giving their all in friendly competition is hard to beat. This coupled with the mass of learning that can be found at TCCs continues to make them premier events in the Treeworker diary.

Upcoming Products

Once again Treeworker are pleased to bring to the UK tree care industry the latest in equipment innovation from the Treemagineers stable. Working together with DMM Wales & Teufelberger Austria the Three Magineers (Chris Cowell, Mark Bridge & Bernd Strasser) have brought us a collection of ropes & rope tools that in time honoured fashion may become staple parts of a tree climbers equipment list. In the thorough manner that epitomises all of the products & projects that these guys get themselves involved with, I'm sure that thanks & praise will be sent in their direction for many moons to come.

Once production times are finalised these new products will be available on the website. In the mean time you will be able to visit us at the Arboricultural Association Trade Fa ...

KiwiKlimbers - The Spikesender

Welcome to Treeworker

Treeworker continues to work behind the scenes to bring innovative products to the UK market. Often against the odds, we maintain a dialogue with designers and manufacturers to keep a stream of products flowing with prices that are well below the European average. Continue to visit our home page and blog to keep up with these new products even before they reach manufacture.

Treeworker is the result of life and work inside the arboriculture industry. The desire to help develop and supply the very latest equipment to climbers and treeworkers is deeply rooted in our philosophy. We are supported by a network of people who diligently try to improve the safety, ergonomics, efficiency and comfort of the equipment we use daily. We hope that Treeworker will continue to be an asset to the industry.


Price fluctuations

International financial instability has caused frequent changes to the cost of many of our products. Our suppliers can change their prices often and it can be difficult to keep up with these fluctuations. Many of our products are sourced from outside the UK and those which aren't are often made from imported materials. The upshot of this is that occasionally a price shown on this website will be incorrect due to a sudden rise in our buy-in price and we may have to contact you with a revision before accepting your order.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
