Introductory Tree Climbing

Date: March 20, 2019 - March 22, 2019
Location: Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: Robert Wells
Sponsor: Morris Arboretum
Description: Zach Shechtman
Owner, Shechtman Tree Care
This class provides an introduction to tree climbing and features the opportunity to have supervised climbing instruction in trees. It is ideal for tree companies looking to advance promising grounds staff, or for gardeners and landscapers who want to add new skills. Effective methods for climbing trees will be demonstrated by instructors and practiced by students. Safety rules will be reviewed and stressed. Students will learn how to tie critical knots regularly used by arborists. Included in the fee, each student will receive a copy of The Tree Climbers Companion by Jeff Jepson, a great resource for climbers. If you have them, bring an arborist’s rope and saddle, a hard hat, gloves, safety glasses to the class. If not, there is equipment you may use. Wear boots, long pants, and dress for the weather.
This class meets at the Arboretum’s Bloomfield Farm Horticulture Center. Please see page 49 for directions.
This course carries 19.5 CEUs for ISA certified arborists (S=7.5, P=12, M=0).
