Who Is The Best Tree Climber In Illinois?

Thirty professional tree climbers will compete for the title of best climber in Illinois on April 26 at Independence Grove in Libertyville.

The public is invited to attend. Along with the competition, there will be exhibitors, food and other activities creating a fun-filled day. Preliminary events begin at 8:30 a.m.

Climbers will perform five different preliminary events: Aerial Rescue, Work Climb, Secured Footlock, Belayed Speed Climb, and Throwline.

Each event tests a competitor's ability to quickly, professionally, and safely maneuver in a tree while performing work-related tree-care tasks. Tree climbing competitions are designed to simulate working conditions of arborists who work in the field. Utilizing the highest level of professional skills and safety, the events provide a competitive learning environment for those working in the industry.

The five climbers who score the highest during the preliminary competition will compete in the Masters' Challenge. The winner of this challenge will be named the Chapter Champion and will earn the honor of representing the Illinois Chapter at the International Tree Climbing Championships in August 2014 in Milwaukee.
