The purpose of the Michigan Tree Climbing Championship is to provide a competitive learning environment for those working in the industry and to showcase the highest level of professional skills and safety. This event is open to the public at no cost. See details below for more information.
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. 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. Bring your picnic supplies, chairs, and warm blankets to the competition and enjoy the competition.
