2010 Tree Climbing Championship

Friday, September 24, 2010 Set Up Day
Saturday, September 25, 2010 IAA-TCC event

The Indiana Arborist Association held their annual Tree Climbing Championship on Saturday, September 25, 2010 in beautiful Forest Park in Noblesville, Indiana. This year we used shelter 5 and our climbers were rewarded with different trees and faced new challenges.

On May 10, 2010, a group of volunteers gathered around the trees at Shelter 5 and Wright Tree Service provided a bucket truck and crew to assist in doing the major pruning. Because we had not used this area of the park in the past, we called in our good friend, Andy Callahan, from Wright’s to help with the selection of the trees. (view for full article)
