The UK & Irish Tree
Climbing Championships are staged by the UK Chapter of the
International Society of Arboriculture. The championships were
set up in 1976 to promote safe working practices for tree surgeons.
Here, we see the
Scottish heat of the championships, held in Edinburgh's Royal
Botanical Garden on the weekend of June 10 to 11, 2006, the same
weekend as the Treefest Scotland exhibition was held in
nearby Inverleith Park.
