And, consider attending yourself! Especially if you have not been to a CTCC before.
On Saturday, May 6th, CTPA will host the 13th annual CT Tree Climbing Competition. 25 climbers from Connecticut and the region around the state will compete. These climbers represent the range of people in professional tree care who climb trees – men and women, advanced climbers ‘in the peak of shape’ and much less experienced climbers – all fit in well at an event that is as much about camaraderie as it is about shaving seconds off of a timed event.
And, for an audience, the skill, athleticism and passion of the climbers can be highly engaging. This is a great showcase for what goes into tree care and professional arboriculture.
The 13th Annual CTCC will be held at Harrybrooke Park in New Milford – 100 Still River Dr, New Milford, CT 06776. CTPA members, especially those who live or work in the New Milford area, are encouraged to spread the word on the competition. CTPA has produced a poster and a press release to help in letting folks know about this event – please share these with anyone (a local fire department, the local newspaper) who might be interested.
Thanks for helping to spread the word.
