Welcome to Cornell Tree Climbing!

Welcome to the Cornell Tree Climbing. CTC promotes safe and environmentally responsible tree climbing techniques for recreation, education, and research. We offer tree climbing courses for all ages and experience levels both locally and internationally.

We are also a source for multi-media information on recreational tree climbing gear and techniques. University programs wishing to offer their own tree climbing programs should check out our Program Resources page. For information, contact Mark Holton (mh45@cornell.edu) at 607-254-2798.
