A: Bull rope is used in arborist work pulling trees down.
Anyhow, what is the strongest rope for pulling?
Also be, what thickness rope for climbing? Single ropes 10mm and above: Ropes with a diameter of 10mm and above are best for gym climbing, frequent top roping, figuring out the moves on sport routes and big-wall climbing. These styles of climbing can wear out a rope faster so it's wise to go with a thicker, more durable rope.
Thus, how much force is needed to pull a tree over?
On a 40'x10' wide tree, this would make 2560 pounds with a 2560x20 = 51.2K lb-ft moment, vs 1 ton x 30' up = 60K lb-ft. It might, if the force is applied over a long time, eg a month.
What tools does an arborist need?
You'll find arborists using saddles, helmets, radios, gloves to help grip, saw protective clothing, eye protection, straps, and spurs. Also look out for ascenders, descenders, eye slings, tails, more carabiners, and pulleys, and more. A lot of the tools used for rigging are also used for climbing.
