    #27: Jeff Jepson

    Jeff Jepson is one of my all-time favorite authors and he has a new book that just came out called Groundie. His previous books include The Tree Climber's Companion, To Fell A Tree, and Knots At Work. All of them are amazing. In this episode we take a deep dive into Jeff's writing process, how he chooses projects, the close call that inspired him to get writing and educating, how he lays out his books graphically, working with his illustrator Bryan Kotwica, how he got into the trade, what he's up to these days, as well as much, much more. I know you are going to get a lot of value out of this. Thanks for being here Climber Nation, I appreciate you!      - Patrick

Malcheski ,

For every budding arborist!

I’m so grateful that we have a professional producing such an informative podcast in our industry. Really easy and interesting listening! I’m looking to make the transition to contract climbing and his advice is invaluable. Look forward to future episodes.
Thanks, Patrick!
