In a recent interview, Waxahachie NOW Magazine, published in Waxahachie, TX, spoke with Jimmy Prichard, owner of TCIA-member company Integrity Tree Care, about his passion for tree care, how tree care runs in the family, and fulfilling his dream to climb at the International Tree Climbing Championships (ITCC).
After 14 years of participating at the state level in Texas, and nine years in the finals, he finally won. “To actually win in the Texas chapter this past year was so rewarding after all my hard work,” said Prichard.
“There were those who told me I should stop competing and focus more on volunteering or organizing events, so winning just goes to show this competition is about experience, mental and physical toughness, and no one should be counted out, despite age.”
Prichard will be representing Texas in the ITCC, held in Columbus, OH, next week.
