Arbtalk Launches new Arborists knot guide

From: Steve Bullman - ArbTalk Administrator

Nearly 3 years since it's conception, and following a year of development, Arbtalk is proud to announce the launch of its brand new Arborist Knot Guide.

Using the same familiar interface as the Fungi Directory the knot guide already boasts 50 knots, all in an easy to follow, step by step slideshow format. We've tried to include as many of the most popular knots as possible, with many obscure ones added in addition. We appreciate there are a few significant knots which have currently been omitted, but are already scheduled in for the next update.

The knot guide is a work in progress and we intend to expand the content considerably over the coming months and years. If there's a particular knot of interest to you that you don't see in the list, please get in touch and we will prioritize it in the next update.

Many thanks to Fletcher Stewarts, Yale, and ISC for their sponsorship of this new resource, and an extra special thank you to Nigel at Fletcher Stewarts for his assistance with the photography, and Chris Cooper-Abbs from The Absolute Arb Company for his expert assistance during the knot tying process.

Finally, we appreciate all feedback, good or bad(especially bad), so please get in touch if you have anything to tell us, and as some of the more obscure knots are as yet without any detail, please feel free to use the comment feature within the knot guide to help us populate the guide with accurate reports on each knots characteristics, Thank you.
