Bill Lohmann has a nice piece on the front of the Metro section of today’s Times-Dispatch on the tree-climbing competition coming to Richmond next weekend. The 2013 Mid-Atlantic Chapter International Society of Arboriculture Tree-Climbing Championship will descend on the Round House in Byrd Park on Saturday and Sunday. Climbing runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and the final round — the Master’s Challenge — starts Sunday at 8 a.m. Our friends at Riverside Outfitters will hold recreational tree-climbing events for kids and adults from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, and food trucks will be on site as well. Admission is free.
