    Description

    The Forest Service Tree Climbing Program provides direction that protects Forest Service employees while ascending, descending, and working aloft in trees by establishing national direction based on recognized industry standards, procedures and practices. Climbing and working in trees demands specialized equipment and skills. The potential for a serious injury or fatal fall is always present, so employees shall be trained and certified before they engage in tree climbing operations and activities. The Forest Service Silvicultural Practices Handbook, FSH 2409.17, Chapter 50-Forest Tree Improvement, shall be followed.
