Tim Kovar is a Master Tree Climbing Instructor with 30 years of teaching experience. His love and respect for nature, and wanderlust spirit, led him to “take the vertical path less traveled”, luring him to remote jungles and forests in pursuit of his vision to help connect others to our natural world.
In 1993, Tim began his career at Tree Climbers International where he helped develop the standardized curriculum that is now taught world-wide. In 2005, he co-founded Tree Climbing Northwest with New Tribe in Southern Oregon. In 2010, he branched out and founded Tree Climbing Planet.
A true believer in sharing his knowledge, Tim consults with eco-tour operators, film crews, researchers, and budding entrepreneurs wishing to plant their own schools and experience.
