RECREATIONAL TREE CLIMBING
The class is for those who wish to learn about the sport itself and be able to climb on their own. The class lasts 1 ½ days and special arrangements can often be made if the posted schedule is not convenient. The first day starts off with the basic lessons about safety and technique and then after a climb in trees already set, it’s off to learn more about how to select the proper trees; how to throw and set the ropes; what sort of ropes and other equipment is needed; how to tie the proper knots etc. The afternoon is spent practicing and the student is then sent home with some rope to practice on (sort of homework…but fun).
The next morning, you get to use everything you learned, selecting the tree, throwing and setting the ropes and then tying the knots….then you climb the tree you prepared. We also go over the various equipment that is available throughout the arborist industry. All equipment is supplied .
Upon course completion a certification card and certificate is issued. Recreational Tree Climbing $280 single or $250 per person for you and a friend. Email Mike or call to verify availability (860)918-0415 , then make reservations under our Classes link.
This is the perfect morning or afternoon in the outdoors for those age 7- 70 who want the experience without learning all the knots. the ropes are already positioned in the trees. The knots are tied and tested before you "hook on". After being fitted with your "saddle" and some short instruction on safety and climbing techniques, you are off and climbing! Call for daily availability -$60.00. Children under 10 climbing with an adult or group are $30.00.
