The Illinois Arborist Association is hosting the 2017 Tree Climbing Competition May 20th at Salt Creek Park in Wood Dale. Thirty climbers will compete in five different events that test the climber’s ability to quickly and safely maneuver in a tree while performing tree care tasks. The top climber that wins the Masters’ Challenge will represent the Illinois Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture at the International Tree Climbing Championships that take place in Washington D.C. this July.
Kramer Tree Specialists is a sponsor of the Tree Climbing Competition by providing lunch and drinks for competitors, spectators and event volunteers. Event activities include a Kid’s Climb, exhibitors and other fun activities sure to please the entire family. The public is welcome to come out to cheer on the climbers and enjoy all the event activities. We hope to see you there!
