Jenkins, Susan; Barlow, Ian; Beckley, Bob. 2004. Advanced Tree Climbing and Rigging Training for Trail Workers. 0423 2303. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center. 8 p.

Describes the advanced tree climbing and rigging class taught at the California Department of Parks and Recreation's William Penn Mott Jr. Training Center at Pacific Grove, CA. Neither the USDI Bureau of Land Management nor the USDA Forest Service offers a combined class in climbing and rigging. Rigging, a system of ropes or cables and hoists, allows trail workers to move heavy objects safely. The class in advanced climbing and rigging is taught by the State of California every 2 years and is open to a limited number of employees from other agencies.
