#1 Wear the right gear
Helmets and face shields: If you are climbing a height, you must wear a helmet and face shield to protect yourself from falling branches, flying debris, and any other accidents. A good helmet helps protect you from impact.
Gloves: Use a pair of heavy-duty gloves to protect your hands from cuts and poisonous plants.
Earmuff: Chainsaws and wood chippers cause a lot of noise, so use earmuffs to protect your ears from the noise.
Chainsaw protective pants and chaps: The pants and chaps provide you safety from various types of sharp objects.
Work boots: The boots offer a better grip during the climb and added protection from an injury.
Climbing equipment: Ensure that you have belts, ropes, lanyards, slings, and carabiners to keep you secured to a tree. Do not use a rope that is wet or has been stored in the sun.
