There are a lot of knots to learn when it comes to climbing trees. Many of them have to do with the climbing itself, some have to do with lowering branches, and some have to do with all the other odds and ends you find yourself doing when you're an arborist. Instead of discussing every single knot one might have to learn while working in the tree business, I've decided to focus this thread strictly on termination knots. This type of knot is my absolute favorite - I'm not even sure why. Perhaps it's because termination knots are generally easy to tie and are extremely secure. Whatever the case, there are a fair number of them and as time passes, I'll do my best at explaining each one (with pictures) on this page. If you've got any suggestions or knots you'd like to share, please don't hesitate adding to the discussion down below.
