Shippensburg Arborist to Compete in ISA International Tree Climbing Competition

Ever since he was a kid, Aaron Feather, Shippensburg, has been climbing trees.

The 30-year-old certified arborist said it got him into trouble more than once when he came home covered in sap and pine chips. But years later, he’s become a top tree climbing competitor in the region.

Feather, who has worked for nine years as a production foreman and safety coordinator with Cumberland Valley Tree Service, will compete Aug. 2 and Aug. 3 at the International Tree Climbing Association in Milwaukee, Wis.
