Arborists

Samson Ropes excel in workplaces as tough as those encountered by the professional arborist. Samson's line of Tree Ropes are specifically engineered to maximize performance where ropes are expected to provide a margin of security for climbers working in the tree, running against bark and through crotches, support and control of descending loads, while providing a reasonable working life.

Samson's line of Arborist ropes includes both climbing and rigging ropes, 12 and 16 strand braided constructions, double braided and three strand twisted ropes. Each construction and combination of fibres offers its own mix of performance characteristics, abrasion resistance and snag resistance are all factors to consider in choosing the appropriate line for a given task.
