Been bummed that there aren't any comps this year. We partnered with Kask and a bunch of other sponsors to bring you what we hope helps fill that void we know is in so many of our hearts!

Full info on the website, basic details below:

Introducing a new kind of Tree Climbing Competition: Judged Online
TreeStuff presents the first climbing competition judged remotely by a panel of the most respected safety experts in the arborist industry and the arborist community online!

Teams of climbers will film themselves solving preset aerial rescue scenarios, set forth by TreeStuff, which will then be scored by industry leading experts and arborists like you.

Each team will get 2 weeks to complete each of 3 aerial rescue challenges and submit their videos before the next challenge starts and the judging begins.

The winning team from each of the 3 challenges will receive a $500 TreeStuff Gift Card, and the team that is the total points winner will receive an additional $1000 in prizes!
