FREE Tree-climbing Worshops for Arborists

"Climb Safer, Higher, Faster"
August 29th 2009

Due to the success of our Chainsaw awareness workshop we have decided to launch another series of FREE WORSHOPS, this time aimed at Arborists and Tree-climbers.

These events will be hosted by Tree Care Ireland and in Carlow and will take place
on saturady mornings between 10am and 1pm, once per month.
Our vision is to get all of the professional tree-climbers in Ireland climbing safer and quicker. Techniques are progressing every day and it is important to keep your skills up to date in order to remain competitive and efficient.
We want to use these workshops as an open forum for discussion of techniques, equipment and technology. We also hope that it will also give climbers the opportunity to meet others in the industry and create some common ground between all of us.
There has been much talk of regulation in our industry and the best way to start is by promoting communication between everyone in the industry.


Just fill in the opt-in box below to register your interest and don't hesitate to contact Tree Care Ireland if you have any questions.

Dartmouth Square, Dublin

Originally uploaded by The Tree Tribe
In the centre of Dartmouth Square, Dublin is a beautifully renovated Victorian Park. The trees in this park are highly significant as the only remaining Grade1 Tree Protection Order in Dublin.
Recent renovation by a team of dedicated residents has revealed a collection of healthy specimen trees such as Lime, Walnut and Oak. Spanning the centre of the park is this wonderful Pergola (pictured), embraced by Wisteria and other climbing plants.
Residents are hoping to raise the profile of this amazing suburban Jewel by running tree related events and concerts.

There is a growing awareness of tree care and tree-related issues in Ireland and membership for the AA is at higher levels than ever before. Trade associations and professional memberships are an important part of interaction with your industry.
