There's a fellow here in Maine, Peter Baldwin, who makes outstanding
wooden apple ladders. He has the whole range of sizes in tripod,
open-topped, and pointed. They all feature basswood sides and ash
rungs. I personally have a 7 foot tripod which is very sturdy, a ten
foot pointed and a sixteen foot pointed which get me just about
anywhere in any tree. If you want to talk to a laid-back guy who
really knows apple ladders give him a call.
