Become a MW-ISA TCC Sponsor:


We need your help to make this the best competition ever.  In the past, sponsors in the green industry have donated money and/or prizes to be used in the competition. For example, ArborMaster Training has donated a complete climbing kit for the champion of the chapter competition, including saddle, rope, chainsaw, and handsaw and rope bag.  While we understand that everyone cannot afford to make such a generous gift, any support we can get will be greatly appreciated. This gives you a chance to get some name recognition while supporting the tree care industry. For more information about becoming a sponsor, contact Rick Tagtow
