Learning the Ropes

There are many reasons why people climb trees. For some, it's a way to relax and "get away from it all." For others, tree climbing is a career choice, such as tree work or canopy research. No matter what your purpose, TCI and our colleagues provide tree climbing instruction to anyone who wants to learn, either in courses held in Atlanta/Jacksonville or at other tree climbing schools where the instructor's expertise is more appropriate to a student's needs.

Tim Peter AbeInstructors Peter Jenkins (left), Tim Kovar (center), and Abe Winters (right) are well-known and loved in the recreational tree climbing community. All three (and many others!) helped to build TCI into the international organization it is today.

In these pages you will find a complete description of TCI's recreational and tree worker training programs. Please read them carefully, and then call us for further information.
