Scott Ross began climbing trees professionally with TrueTimber Tree Service in April of 2003. He had a background in rock climbing, camp counseling, and program planning. The owner of TrueTimber Tree Service, Scott Turner, had a dream of teaching young people to appreciate their environment through recreational tree climbing. While Scott Ross was away at college, Scott Turner began to make his dream a reality. After graduating, Scott Ross took over the climbing program and started a tree climbing based summer program. The first year of camp he had about 12 participants. Through word of mouth, the fledgling program steadily grew to the scope of what it is today. From training the Chesterfield County S.W.A.T. Team to washing the windows of the Virginia General Assembly building, Scott loves everything about climbing. Scott Ross has a bachelor’s degree in Recreation Management, concentrated in Outdoor Experiential Education from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. Scott is an International Society of Arboriculture Tree Climber Specialist, competitor in the International Society of Arboriculture’s Tree Climbing Championship (along with Scott Turner,) Raft Guide, an American Canoe Association Whitewater Kayak Instructor, and former breakdancer.
