In response to recent discussions, I reviewed Tree Climbers International's "Wilderness Ethics", updated them, and re-named them "Tree Climbing Ethics." I tightened up and clarified our position on not climbing in old growth forests (now named old growth ecosystems, thanks Don Bertolette!), and specified more about the vulnerability of trees and habitat (thanks, Andrew Joslin!). Please have a look -- the document is attached. I welcome your comments.
Our Ethics document will be circulated later this week in our newsletter to TCI's apx 7500 email list, and posted on our Facebook page to our apx 3200 "likes". I think these numbers probably cover most of the recreational climbers in the United States and a great many of the TCI members and followers abroad.
