ISA Tree Climbing Competition

TCIA is partnering with the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) to feature an indoor speed-climbing event! It’s a great opportunity to learn from ISA experts and experience what it would be like to compete in a Tree Climbing Championship (TCC) event.

And if you would like to get even more involved, there will be a chance to learn how to host a TCC. Challenge yourself and learn smart safety practices at the same time!
