Introductory Tree Climbing for Women

Date: October 12, 2019
Location: Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: Robert Wells
Description: Women can be talented, successful climbers, even in a field traditionally dominated by men. This course, taught by ISA state champion tree climber, Rachel Brudzinski, will demonstrate climbing techniques geared to female climbers. It will also provide a basic understanding of tree biology that is critical for practicing arborists. The class will focus on teaching women with a passion for arboriculture how to create and maintain a safe working environment, develop fundamental arboricultural skills, and learn the professional techniques necessary to develop an approach for climbing a tree. You will learn some of the latest professional tree climbing advancements, and have the opportunity to participate in supervised in-tree climbing. Novice to advanced women climbers are welcome.
Please wear appropriate clothing—long sleeves, flexible and durable pants, and high ankle/light weight footwear. If you have regulation climbing gear including a rope, harness, hard hat with chin strap, and eye protection, please bring it. You may also want to bring gloves.
We will meet at Bloomfield Farm. Look for the paved road across E. Northwestern Avenue from the public garden entrance. Take the second right. Park in the lot and follow the signs to the Horticulture Center.
This course carries 6.5 CEUs for ISA certified arborists. (S=0, P=6.5, M=0).
