The Pacific Northwest Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture is pleased to host the Southern Oregon Regional Tree Climbing Competition. This educational event and skills competition is an excellent way for climbers of all skill levels to learn the latest in safety and climbing techniques. Beginning and experienced climbers are encouraged to participate.


Climbers participate in five events: aerial rescue, belayed speed climb, ascent event/secured footlock, throw line, and work climb. The top four qualifiers are eligible to compete in the Chapter Tree Climbing Championship this fall in Vancouver, BC. Chapter TCC winners go on to represent PNW-ISA at the International Tree Climbing Championship.

This will be a fun filled day that the entire family will enjoy. Please come and watch true tree care professionals at their best!
