The Northland Tree Climbers Association, headed by Joe Cooper and Troy Alderton, plan to host another Aerial Rescue and Open Forum as per last years effort.
Scheduled for Saturday 25 August, starting at about 8:30am, the 2012 NTCA tree climbers Practice Day and Open Forum will be located in the trees at Mander Park, Whangarei.
The event is open to all arborists and tree climbers in the Northern Region (or elsewhere for that matter). SRT proponent and Thoughtplanters trainer Johno Smith will run a special workshop for ex-Foundation Certificate arb students. The floor will be open to ex-FCA to exchange ideas and ask questions - chances are, Johno will come up with some interesting set-ups for you to trail.
Bring along the kids for some tree climbing, the NTCA have plenty of junior gear courtesy of Treetools - a sausage sizzle is planned to start about 2:00pm. You'll find out more about the Aerial Rescue and Open Forum on the NTCA Facebook page or the Rakau arb apparel website (owned by NTCA founder Joe Cooper).
