This book is one in a series of Minimum Industry Standards produced by Arboriculture Australia Ltd and the New Zealand Arboricultural Association in consultation with the national arboriculture community in both countries. These industry peer-reviewed documents provide a ‘body of knowledge’ which is shared by practitioners and can be used as the basis for training, dissemination of skills and professional development. MIS302 covers the fundamentals of rope selection, qualities of ropes and rope use: it is intended to provide a solid foundation of rope knowledge on which practitioners can build.


Users are recommended to consult MIS301 Arborist Knots for more details about knot selection and knot tying. Details of the use of ropes for climbing and rigging operations are contained within the relevant MISs for those work tasks.
