TreeXP offers recreational tree climbing instruction using different types of climbing gear and climbing methods. We enjoy working one-on-one, or in groups, across a broad range of ages, shapes and sizes, including and especially those with special challenges.
TreeXP is a safe place for Recreational Tree Climbers and others who are enthusiastic and excited about connecting with Nature. This site recognizes the sport of tree climbing and serves to unite and inform recreational tree climbers who prefer to climb in a non-invasive manner.
TreeXP offers recreational tree climbing training, demonstration and consulting services, while promoting the sport of tree climbing as a way to improve oneself, both physically and spiritually.
Tree climbing is a great form of exercise, creating harmony and focus between body and mind. It’s as much spiritual as it is physical and technical. Just being in the presence of trees and nature’s abundance, while exercising your body and mind is immensely gratifying.
We hope you’ll become as passionate and excited about Recreational Tree Climbing as we are. If you’re already an experienced rock-climber, than perhaps you are familiar with many of the tree-climbing components. Tree climbing offers us an objective reality that allows us to challenge ourselves, while connecting directly with nature.
- Tree Climbing 101
Obtaining professional tree-climbing instruction is recommended for anyone and everyone, who wants to learn how to safely climb trees. Learning how to identify hazards and understanding the risk is mission-critical. Reading about it, or watching videos is no substitute for the real deal. Climb at your own risk.
Getting the climbing line into the tree is the first objective. Hand-throwing a weighted throw-bag, tied to a string, or by using an oversized sling shot, known as a Big Shot, to shoot a weighted throw-bag tied to a light weight throw line over a secure branch and then by feeding the rope into the tree, is how it’s usually done. Trees like Redwoods, may require a more powerful launching device, like a crossbow, an airgun, or even with the use of a drone.
TreeXP is currently offering recreational tree climbing consulting services. We provide climbing demonstrations and offer hand’s on opportunities to demo different kinds of gear and climbing systems. We teach and encourage others to reinforce safe and non-invasive (tree-friendly) climbing techniques.
Our services help our clientele intelligently and mindfully acclimate into the recreational tree climbing world, through personalized instruction.
All are welcome here, so please come join us for a taste of the TreeXP’erience.
