Vermeer Canada is very proud to once again be part of the Ontario Tree Climbing Championship. The event provides a regional platform to showcase arborists’ proficiencies in tree climbing while simulating working conditions of arborists in the field, based on judging criteria established from industry best practices and safety standards. The competition is also an opportunity to introduce the latest climbing techniques and innovations in equipment, in a controlled, safe environment where it can be judged by a panel of experts. At the same time, the OTCC facilitates an environment of interaction between ISAO members and other supporters of the community, such as equipment manufacturers, suppliers, trainers, researchers, and business owners in order to promote worker safety and training. Lastly, competitive tree climbing introduces the public to the skills professional climbing arborists must use for safe, professional tree work.
The OTCC is held in different parks throughout Ontario; Arborists who compete come from all over the province, to demonstrate their skills in 5 preliminary events: Work Climb, Belayed Speed Climb, Simulated Aerial Rescue, Throwline and as of 2019, ISA Ontario will introduce the Ascent Event.
