“When we first started taking young people into trees I thought we would be teaching environmental science. As it turns out that is only partly true. Tree climbing itself creates an environment where students find within themselves motivation, personal courage and success at something previously unimagined.”
The Pacific Tree Climbing Institute (PTCI) offers professionally guided tree climbing expeditions in the magnificent trees found in the legendary forests of the Pacific Northwest.
Their mission statement is to show people that the remaining old-growth groves have greater value as intact forests than as lumber.
PTCI hopes to inspire the public to take action to preserve these special places by facilitating this unique and eye-opening experience.
PTCI will provide safety instruction and guidance for students during the climb.
