When used in conjunction with a saddle and flipline, a good set of tree climbing spurs allows you to essentially walk up a tree. Although other gear can certainly be incorporated, you really can climb a tree using just these components. Typically, spur climbing is done when a tree is to be removed as the sharp spur gaffs will cause damage to the tree. Spurs are also acceptable for use in emergency rescue situations, or when climbing a tree that is already dead. Once you’ve decided that spiked climbing is for you, the next task is choosing a pair of climbing spurs.
We offer tree climbing spurs (aka tree spikes) from quality names like Buckingham, Climb Right and Klein (we also offer Pole Climbing Spurs and other gear in our comprehensive Fall Protection category). This means we offer several types and styles, from standard steel spurs to lightweight aluminum and composite spurs. You can buy spurs by themselves, or you can buy them in ready-to-use packages that come with spur pads and straps. No matter how you buy, feel confident that you're buying new gear with full manufacturer's warranty and competitive pricing. If you're just starting out, or looking to revamp your equipment altogether, then check out our Complete Tree Climbing Kits that combine spurs with other major components for one low price!
