Australian Tree Climbing Championships
- May 18th 2019, 8:00am - 8:00am
- The Alice Springs Telegraph Station
The 2019 ATCC will be held at the historic Alice Springs Telegraph Station on 18 May.
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. They showcase the highest level of professional skills and safety, providing a competitive learning environment for those working in the industry.
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 manoeuver 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. We invite you to come and watch Australia’s top climbers show you how it’s done.
