Supporting Safety and Awareness in the Arboricultural Industry
ISA Chapters, Competition Judges, and vendors are all encouraged to enter a team of 6 to participate in this competition. Teams battle it out in an obstacle course of groundwork duties including raking, log-rolling, and knot-tying; the top team receives the ULTIMATE HONOR of taking home the coveted SCA Rake and Golden Hard Hat award!
All competitors receive a free RakeMaster t-shirt. This event is a great team-building experience that helps develop camaraderie among colleagues spread across great distances.
There is a participation fee of $100 per team, and all proceeds from this event are donated to the Safe Arborist Techniques Fund, within the TREE Fund. The purpose of the Safe Arborist Techniques Fund is to support research focusing on the development and training of techniques and equipment used in climbing, rigging and working on trees in order to provide a safer working environment for tree care professionals.
