Prepping for the International Tree Climbing Championship

By Erik Bilstad. CREATED Aug 1, 2014

When I was a kid, I was a tree climber. I loved it. I couldn't go high enough.  

So when I got the chance to climb an old Cottonwood at Mount Mary University, I jumped at it.  

The International Tree Climbing Championship will be held there this weekend. It's part of the International Society of Arboriculture annual conference and trade show.

My thanks to Rip and Mike for showing me the 'ropes.'
