Hi David, apologies for my delay in replying here.

The forthcoming Technical Guide for tree climbing and access will provide 
further guidance here.

Hi Paul

It says "A risk assessment has demonstrated that the use of a second line 
would entail higher risk to persons; and Appropriate measures have been taken 
to ensure safety.’"

Do you have any examples of situations that would demonstrate clear 
justification for single rope access?

Just saw a posting about this.......

"This is an interesting time in the world of Arboriculture. With the 
HSE now insistent on the use of two-rope working, industry 
professionals are working hard to devise systems to maintain 
compliance."

Does anybody know if this is just a development out of idealogical 
principle, or has it been provoked by specific accidents or broader 
accident statistics ?

David
