Back by popular demand at the 2011 GIE+EXPO, Mark Chisholm, three-time international tree climbing champion, will share some techniques he has learned as a third-generation, ISA-certified arborist over the last 25 years in the industry. His presentation, “Tree Removal Tips and Techniques that Help Save Time and Money,” will take place Oct. 27 from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

Participants will be able to learn about tree removal strategies that can help save time, reduce the risk of injury, and increase their profit margins while satisfying their clients’ tree care needs. As an industry expert, Chisholm conducts education seminars nationwide on behalf of STIHL Inc.

Chisholm has been featured in the The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and on CNN. He has also appeared on P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home on PBS and the syndicated show P. Allen Smith Gardens. The shows featured Chisholm pruning centuries-old post oaks at the Garden Home Retreat in Arkansas of TODAY Show garden contributor P. Allen Smith. Chisholm has also appeared on DIY Network’s Deconstruction and King of Dirt.
