A number of individuals have expressed a need for some
form of guideline document to present to interested clients
when presenting ideas for programmed tree climbs. The
following document, prepared by a number of program operators,
was created with very general and non-specific recommendations
that could be enlarged upon by participating programmers.
Each participating individual, agency, and institution
has added a document that follows the format of the general
and non-specific document to give specific guidelines
for its own location and operation.
