Frequently asked questions

Do I need a tree?

Although a tree is preferable for the overall look, we understand you might not have a tree suitable for a tree house. We're able to build around a young tree, supporting the structure from the ground and when the tree is strong enough, we can anchor it to the tree and remove the ground support. 

Do I need a building permit?

This depends on the city you're in. Contact us and we'll find out what the latest ordinances are in your neighborhood.

How do you calculate how much weight a tree can hold?

There is only one way to truly know how much weight a tree can hold, after we build the platform, we add some empty rain barrels to the platform and we start adding water. When we have added enough weight to support the structure and about the weight of 30 kids we are satisfied. A healthy tree will only get stronger.
