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.
