About Phillip Kelley:

I now work for a large privately owned tree service in Metro Atlanta and am acting Operations Manager and Training Supervisor. Now that is a mouthful! All it means is I run a crew 4 days a week doing production tree work and training co workers.

I am also currently the head judge of the Aerial Rescue event at the International Tree Climbing Championship(ITCC) and have been involved with this event for the last 15 years.I am also Head Judge of the North American Tree Climbing Championship. I am also Head Tech of the ISA Southern Chapter TCC event, Head Tech of the Kentucky Arborist Association TCC and Head Tech of the Georgia Arborist Association TCC and have been involved in these events for many years.  Yes I am getting old. I have been able to serve as a past president of the Georgia Arborist Association and currently serve on the International TCC rules committee. In my spare time I serve the arborist community by passing along my experience and some really good stories as a Lead Instructor for North American Training Solutions. I have been with NATS since 2009 and have been fortunate to be part of classes all over the world. Meeting arborists, making friends and sharing a few good laughs along the way!
