Each year at TCI EXPO (November 14 - 16, Charlotte, NC), we hold Tree Demonstrations at the center of the trade show floor. This is easily one of our most popular attractions, and can be viewed during most of the conference.
Attendees can stop by to watch demonstrations of arborist skills from organizations such as North American Training Solutions, ArborMaster, and Kramer Tree Specialists, Inc., who will be leading this year's demonstrations.
Not only is the Tree Demonstration free for all TCI EXPO attendees, all tree demo viewers can earn up to .75 CEUs, just by watching the demonstrations! To view this year’s Tree Demo schedule, click here.
For those who want a little "behind-the-scenes" look at how we set up and run the TCI EXPO Demo Tree, here are a few quick facts about the process. Rigging aficionados will be especially interested to learn the techniques that govern way we anchor this large exhibit so as to safely conduct demonstrations, day in and day out, on the TCI EXPO trade show floor.
Check out the video below (filmed while setting up for TCI EXPO 2007) to see exactly how the Demo Tree rigging is done from start to finish!
