from the 2011 competition
The competition is being held August 11-12 at Laurelhurst Park in Portland, Oregon. Believe it or not, sixty-one of the world's best professional tree climbers from sixteen countries will be duking it out, scoring points for skill and agility while maneuvering through trees.
Durham's own, Cormac Nagan, an arborist and the owner of Aerial Tree Care, will represent ten states as the Southern Chapter regional champion. He placed fourth in the 2009 competition.
Special thanks to reader E. Strein for sending this our way.
