First 'Climb a Mile' event at Scone Palace

Recommended Posts

In celebration of the International Year of Forests, 2011, the Arboricultural Association Scottish Branch and Forestry Commission Scotland are working together in aid of a new charity fund-raising event: Climb a Mile.


This will involve a team of professional arborists climbing a tree in relay to achieve a total height equal to or greater than one mile.


This will be held in the stunning grounds of Scone Palace. Participants will be climbing one of the magnificent specimen trees in the arboretum.


This will be held on the 18th and 19th of June.


Participants will be expected to raise sponsorship money to be given in entirety to the Help for Heroes charity.


We need as many climbers as possible to help us achieve the one mile goal, and to raise as much money for Help the Heroes as possible. This will be a great day - one not to be missed or forgotten!


PDFs of the sponsorship form and Disclaimer form are attached below, or can be downloaded from here: Scottish - SC Branch - - Arboricultural Association.

Thanks for the interest guys. Will, anyone can climb if they are competent (i.e. have a relevant certificate). Tom, you can climb as few or as many times as you like - obviously the more times the better, if we are to reach a vertical mile.


I have had to amend the disclaimer form as it had some errors - the new one is attached: CAM form pdf.pdf


There is some more information about the event here: Help for heroes information June 2011.pdf


We will be climbing a 25-30 metre route up one of the Douglas Firs. Don't eat too many pies before climbing!


Please spread the word - it promises to be a great social occasion as well as raising funds for a worthy charity.
