Tree Climbing Championship

April, 6 2013 – A great day at the MAC ISA (Mid Atlantic Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture) Tree Climbing Championship in Richmond’s Byrd Park.  An estimated 800 people watched professional arborists in action.  The competition included speed climbs, the “work climb” which requires the competitor to  move around in the tree to perform various tasks, and the carefully planned and performed rescue of a 120 pound dummy.


At the end of the day there were some official winners, however the “feel” of the event was not one of competetion, but one where each climber did his or her best with encouragement from fellow arborists.  

When your trees need work beyond what you can do or if you have concerns about your trees, we recommend you talk to  an ISA certified arborist.  These people really know the ropes!  Find one close to you at
