STIHL partners with Mark Chisholm to help bring Arborist workshops to the Arborist community. STIHL New Zealand has been bringing Mark to New Zealand for a number of years to do workshops with the Arborist community in NZ.
One part acrobat, one part expert rope climber, one part tree physiologist, and several parts competitor and thrill seeker, Mark Chisholm is a third-generation, certified arborist with his family owned Aspen Tree Expert Company in New Jersey. His expertise in tree care has made him a sought-after consultant and industry spokesperson for the world of arboriculture.
In 2017, STIHL brought Mark to New Zealand to host a series of workshops in Auckland and Hamilton. In each workshop he covered topics from ‘Ascending systems’ to ‘Forces in rigging and how to use that data’. He also discussed ‘Doubled rope work positioning’ and ‘Stationary/single rope positioning’.
The response from attendees for the free workshops was really positive across all the STIHL SHOP venues. Seth Thompson of Tree Fellas attended the East Tamaki event and contacted STIHL to say - “Thanks for bringing Mark Chisholm over from the USA to present a free workshop on modern tree climbing techniques. Both myself and my team really appreciated the opportunity to attend, we learnt a lot, Mark was both professional and informative. It is really great to see a company giving back to its clients; I look forward to more events like this in the future. Once again, thanks STIHL."
