Saturday, May 7th, 2011 :: Contestant Sign-in 7:00 AM :: 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM :: Allegheny Cemetery, Butler Street Entrance, Pittsburgh, PA 15201Watch as International Society of Arboriculture Certified Professionals take to the treetops to prune high up branches and keep mature trees healthy in this exciting family-friendly competition in Allegheny Commons.
What got my attention is the location of the competition, Allegheny Cemetery. The cemetery is one of those odd urban spaces that I find so captivating. There's a Rust Belt Chic angle in there somewhere. If you live in the city, I recommend going (both to the cemetery and the competition).
