NZ Speed Tree Climbing TransTasman Champs
This event is on 12/03/2017 9:30 am until 11:00 am
NZ Speed Tree Climbing Trans-Tasman Championship in association with Asplundh and Guardian Tree Services
An unfamiliar sport to many but one which attracts dedicated arborists around the world and was the surprise hit of Hilux NZ Rural Games 2016. The event demands a head for heights, great agility and technical expertise.
We’re hosting two disciplines – the ‘work climb’ featuring a different task at each ‘station’ and the ‘footlock’ where speed is king.
Want to know more? The event is being run by the New Zealand Arboricultural Association who are hosting special have-a-go sessions for kids on both days of the Games. Visit the tree climbing page on their website here.
