Classes April – October
TCP’s main location is located just south of Portland on 150 acres of forested farmland. Mature oak trees with wide crowns and suitable branches serve as the outdoor classroom, making learning easy for the novice. The site also contains a variety of elegant Big Leaf Maple trees, giant Douglas firs, and revered Western Red Cedar trees, which play important roles as our teachers.
Our primary training tree is named Pagoda, a 75’ tall Oregon White Oak with a 3’ DBH (diameter at breast height). Pagoda has plenty of stout lateral branches for easy crown movement. Due to this architecture, students find her gentleness very contagious. (More about our Oregon City location.)
Additional Training Locations
In addition to the specific locations listed, TCP serves as a mobile school, bringing the art of technical tree climbing to your location. If you would like to host a course, a minimum of four students, reliable approved training trees, suitable lodging and travel fees are some of the responsibilities for an instructor to travel to your site. Specific course fees vary based on location and conditions. Please contact us for additional information.
