Wahine Tree Climbing Workshop

September 13, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Instructor: Jamilee Kempton

Want to learn how to climb trees? This 4‐hour class will introduce the basics of tree climbing in a fun filled, low‐pressure atmosphere. This is a hands‐on workshop where participants will engage in all aspects of tree climbing: rope installation, tying appropriate knots, and entering the tree. No tree climbing experience necessary.

Recommended attire: Hiking shoes, work pants, and a long sleeved t‐shirt. Please note that tree climbing does require some upper body strength. If you are active and enjoy exercising, this is an awesome opportunity for you to climb some of the most beautiful trees on the island of O`ahu. Jamilee Kempton, staff Arborist at Lyon Arboretum is the 2013 Western Chapter Women’s Tree Climbing Champion, and was the top ranked competitor from the USA at the 2013 International Tree Climbing Championships.

Limited to a maximum of 10 climbers. CEU’s (continuing education units) for this workshop are available for ISA Certified Arborist/Tree Workers.
