Purpose of the ITCC


The purpose of the International Tree Climbing Championship (ITCC) series is to provide educational opportunities for arborists through a safe, competitive event in order to:

  • Demonstrate proficiency in climbing based on judging criteria established from industry best practices and safety standards.
  • Introduce new techniques and equipment in a controlled, safe environment for review by a qualified judging panel composed of industry experts.
  • Encourage the use of industry safety standards and best practices to improve safety within the arborist community.
  • Create an environment that allows for educational interaction between ISA members and other industry stakeholders, such as equipment manufacturers, suppliers, trainers, researchers, business owners, and field personnel in order to increase worker safety and training.
  • Provide public education about the industry and positive public exposure for the profession.
