The Practical Rigging series begins with basic methods for hardware selection and use, knot tying and limb removal, and advances to compound rigging techniques and methods for removing heavy wood. Loads of excellent illustrations by Bryan Kotwica (and others). Each section is followed by a series of CEU questions to test your knowledge. An essential book for every arborist library!
