North American Tree Climbing Championship
Save the Date! NATCC 2025 will be in Texas March 2025
The North American Tree Climbing Championship (NATCC) provides a competitive but educational opportunity for working arborists in North America to demonstrate and exchange new climbing techniques and equipment, as well as,safe work practices. The NATCC also increases the interaction between various firms, ISA North American chapters and members, and provides positive public exposure for the profession in that region of the world.
The winners of this event represent North America at the annual International Tree Climbing Championship.
The NATCC qualifier for ITCC 2024 was hosted in Washington DC in October 2023. The NATCC qualifier for ITCC 2025 will be hosted in March 2025. Traditionally, NATCC takes place after ITCC, and as a result, the winner of the NATCC would qualify for the following year’s ITCC. This shift will better align with the annual tree climbing championship schedule and provide no interruption in competition qualifiers, even though there will not be an NATCC in the 2024 calendar year. NATCC will be held in February moving forward.
