Tree Climbing Championship

The Indiana Tree Climbing Championship provides a competitive but educational opportunity for working arborists to demonstrate and exchange new climbing techniques, increase the interaction between various firms and members in the industry, and provide positive public exposure for the profession. Professional tree climbing competitions that simulate working conditions of arborists in the field are held around the world to expand the platform for arborists to learn about the latest in climbing techniques and innovations in equipment. Showcasing the highest level of professional skills and safety, this learning environment also introduces the public to the skills professional tree climbing arborists must use for safe, professional tree work.

The contestants must compete in five preliminary events, Work Climb, Aerial Rescue, Throwline, Ascent Event, and Speed Climb. The contestants who accumulate the highest combined points total in the preliminary events earn the right to move on to the championship round, the Masters’ Challenge and awarded prizes from ArborMaster. ISA is still working on the planning of future International Climbing Competitions

Cost: FREE 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to a record number of registrants in 2021, we expect that we will again need to close registration early. Due to high registration the master climb will occur on Sunday morning October 9th.
