Tree Climbers International
Founded in 1983 by climbing enthusiast and retired knee surgeon Peter "Treeman" Jenkins, TCI was the first school of its kind to offer expert instruction in the art of recreational tree climbing. Whether you're a seasoned climber who's looking for advanced classes on branch walking and split tail climbing, or a beginner in search of new thrils, TCI is the place to start. For Beginner's Climbs, drop by Blackburn Park in North Atlanta from 2-5 p.m. on the first and third Sundays of each month. A lifetime membership with TCI is only $25, and perks include website privileges, a badge, and a helmet sticker, as well as significant discounts at Sherrill Arborist Supply and WesSpur Tree and Equipment.
