Want to compete with the best


New Member
Hey guys, I want to compete against the best tree climbers in the world. I come from the back woods of Arkansas and have been climbing trees ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I have worked all over my beautiful state, the Mid-West, and a little on the East Coast. I recently landed a job with Asplundh Tree Expert Co. in Hampton Roads Va. Maybe someone could help me out with some info on getting started in the competition part of the tree industry. I love tree work and couldnt see myself doing anything else. Your help would greatly be appreciated.

Here from the beginning
Contact the Midwest Chapter of the ISA. Their competition is generally in June. You might be able to compete as a guest in other chapters too.

Arkansas isn't a member of Midwest chapter? Never thought about who they belong to..
But definitely get on the ISA website and get ahold of someone.. New competition is always welcome....
