Climbers’ Forum

On the 6 and 7 May the Climbers’ Forum will be taking place as part of the German Tree Care days in Augsburg, for more info go to the web site: This event has has been held annually for the past 15 years and during this time has developed  into a really vibrant, diverse and stimulating event showcasing a wide range of topics surrounding working in trees,  many new ideas were first shown here in public  and novel formats for presentations have been explored.

This year we will be premiering the treemagineers drop tower, which we’re all very excited about (and not in the least bit nervous, never!), also there will be  simultaneous translation from German to English and vice versa.

This event is unique in the tree climbing world and is a fantastic place to network, catch up with friends and stock up on new ideas and inspiration. If you’ve never been, why don’t you come and join us?

Going to Japan

Next week I will be traveling to Japan, after KEM Japan have kindly invited us back after last year’s workshops in Saitama. I will be returning to Saitama to do a one day event there, also we will be in Kyoto for  a two-day workshop. I really enjoyed the trip last year, KEM were very gracious hosts, the organization of the events was flawless and the attendees were very interested and switched on. I was also chuffed to catch the tail end of the cherry blossom, which seems very appropriate when visiting Japan.

Thanks to all involved for making this possible, DMM and Teufelberger for the support and the shipping ahead of the equipment and of course KEM for organizing and hosting the event.

I’ll post some pics as we go along…
