The Texas Tree Climbing Competition will be held at Richard Moya Park southeast of Austin, Texas. Gear check will be May 18th and the competition will be May 19-20, 2023.

The competition aims to 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 maneuver in a tree while performing work-related tree-care tasks in a timely manner.

There will be a pre-competition workshop on May 18th. Registration links for both the workshop and Competition will be emailed to the ISAT membership around the first of April. Make sure your chapter membership is up to date so you do not miss your chance to compete.
