About the National Tree Climbing Championship

Regional tree climbing competitions are held around New Zealand to provide a platform for arborists to learn about the latest in climbing techniques and innovations in equipment. The top men and women qualifiers from the regional events then compete at the National Championship. They showcase the highest level of professional skills and safety, providing a competitive learning environment for those working in the industry. The winners go on to the International TCC held by the ISA.

Currently, New Zealand climber Scott Forrest is the Men's World Champion having just won the title in Milwaukee, Michigan.

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 maneuver 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.
