Our guys from TreeCareIreland spent a few days pruning and removing deadwood from the competition trees at the Pheonix Park. The initial meetings with Park staff were an important part of making this event work, as there has never been a recreational tree climbing event at the Park and there was some concern about potential damage.
Reassurance from us and a great deal of trust from the park staff gave us an opportunity to demonstrate that these events are an important part of raising awareness of trees and educating the public about tree care.
