The International Society of Arboriculture’s Rocky Mountain Chapter Tree Climbing Competition
When: June 24-26, 2022
Where: City of Nairobi Park, 3500 Cook St., Denver, CO 80205
What: The International Society of Arboriculture’s (ISA) Rocky Mountain Chapter Tree Climbing Competition is happening this weekend, and it’s just what it sounds like. But it’s not for kiddos – this one’s for the pros. Working arborists in the Rocky Mountain region from Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming and Montana will be demonstrating climbs, and exchanging ideas for new techniques and equipment, as well as best practices for safe work, all in an atmosphere of friendly competition.
From The International Society of Arboriculture’s website:
Professional tree climbing competitions are held around the world to provide a platform for arborists to learn about the latest in climbing techniques and innovations in equipment. They showcase the highest level of professional skills and safety, providing a competitive learning environment for those working in the industry.
The competitions simulate working conditions of arborists in the field. Male and female competitors perform five different events during preliminary rounds. Each event tests a competitor’s ability to professionally and safely maneuver in a tree while performing work-related tree-care tasks in a timely manner.
Competitive tree climbing also introduces the public to the skills professional tree climbing arborists must use for safe, professional tree work.
View the complete schedule if you want to stop by and watch the action. The winners of this event will go on to represent ISA Rocky Mountain Chapter at the North American Tree Climbing Championship as well as the annual International Tree Climbing Championship.
