2024 NSTCC


Professional tree climbing competitions are held around the world to provide a platform for arborists to learn about the latest in climbing techniques and innovations in equipment. They showcase the highest level of professional skills and safety, providing a competitive learning environment for those working in the industry.

The competitions simulate working conditions of arborists in the field.  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.

The Natural State Tree Climbing Competition will be held May 3-5, 2024 at Byrd’s Adventure Center on the Mulberry River.
