Checked the site today. The climbing tree is a huge sycamore. 75' tall with about 110" spread. Can use some weight reduction pruning.
The removal is a dead red oak near the road. Bucket access is great. We can do drift lining, lifting with a GRCS, slide line, spar work and whatever else suits your fancy.
We still need more attendees, bring your climbing gear. There's lots of room in the sycamore for climbers.

It went very well. Great weather, good trees and very energetic students. The class ran from 8:00a.m. till 3:00p.m. both days. Everybody was early and we ended up staying till around 5:00p.m. Lots of fun and learning. This was the tree we used for the climbing portion.

Norm & Todd made numerous offers for everyone to climb. Those who wanted to, did so.

They also extended the workshops past the schedule by 2 - 3 hours each day.
They then stayed several more hours for discussion, questions, etc.

Thanks Norm & Todd.
See Ya'll Again Soon,
Greg

I know 3 folks in the springfield area who might go next time, plus mice elf.

And I know of 2 humongous 250+ year old bur oaks in Athens that would be great to climb. One has some cool rigging challenges.
