Ensuring all competitors are using equipment that is safe is the first task of all our tree climbing competitions. If you’re new to tree climbing competitions, or would just like a refresher, the ISA have a complimentary Gear Check Video that covers how to properly conduct a gear check for a Tree Climbing Competition (TCC).
The video, which looks at a range of topics relating to proper equipment, maintenance and safety, can be found here. Alternatively, check out the documents below:
