hi guys, new to the forum been lurking for a little while reading up . first time posting so go easy on me, i just wanted to say hi and ask a question.

I've just decided to make a career change as my last job was killing me (shift working etc) . I've recently completed my cs30/31

and am now looking at 38/39. I'm lucky to be in the position that I've been able to buy myself some climbing equipment ahead of the training. My question is this...… could anyone tell me what equipment would actually be required? I have already purchased a harness, rope, petzl zig zag and chicane, lanyard, foot and knee ascender, karabiners, throw line and weight and a helmet and off the top of my head that's it. I've been out today and had a little go I managed to set a cambium saver ( which I also managed to leave in the tree later)  climb on a double rope system. also tried srt with a base anchor ( to retrieve my cambium saver ) and made my way around the tree a little. I know hse regulations mean I will now require another system (rope, zizag etc) but is there anything else ive not mentioned that would be needed?

 

cheers guys thanks in advance any help would be appreciated. keen learner here.

Hello everyone, recently joined up, have looked in on here before for information, from time to time. I see there are many knowledgeable folk on here, so I expect you to be able to answer any of the stupid questions I may ask with well thought out, accurate and helpful replies. ( Don't worry, I realise that may be a big ask). 

 

About me: Spent my life in agriculture, until redundancy pushed me into becoming a Landscaper/Handyman/Groundworker/Builder's Labourer ( sometimes all at once) quite a few years ago! I muddle through with the help of cleverer people and the Internet. 

The one thing that's very apparent is that compared to many folk here, I'm a rank amateur, thus my quest for knowledge. Thanks for letting me in.

Welcome to the site. Even if you are an amateur on trees I can guarantee your background will mean you have some useful insight to offer :)

Even if you are an amateur on trees I can guarantee you’ll still know a lot more than some of the most vociferous ‘expert’ inputters on here too!!!
(But don’t be put off, there is a really wide and friendly knowledge base too).

Hi new'ish here found some friendly posters already and site seems pretty good so well done on making it available to everyone.

 

Quite a wide scope of ground covered unlike other forums.

 

As for climbing last time i tried the tree came down quicker than me and cutting it!😁

I was lurking here a bit and now decided to join. Glad to be a new member.

Nice to meet you all here. Have a great day! And stay safe.
