Knots at Work DESCRIPTION
Knots at Work by Jeff Jepson is a field guide for the modern arborist. In this 184-page field guide, more than 50 different knots are presented. Both aspects of knot knowledge are given equal time - knot construction (tying the knots) and knot application (using the knots). This information can be quickly grasped, because of the lavishly illustrated pages, easy-to-read text, and unique cross-reference format. And because of the book's compact size it’s more likely to be used in the field where it’s needed most.
