Our platform attachment method uses a compression method of protect the living tree. While many companies make this claim, not all compression methods are well designed to allow for fluid flow up and down the tree. Additionally, many of these methods require constant adjustments to the platforms to allow for tree girth growth. The adjustments are often quite time consuming, difficult to make, and arguably pointless because damage to the tree has already been done. Our method utilizes a compression technique than minimizes the footprint on the tree and is easily accommodated by the tree.
All elements and belay cables are wrapped around minimally-sized blocks that allow for fluid translocation and do not allow for girdling of the tree. We use composite materials or treated wood to prevent decay build up between the bark and wood due to moisture damage.
Platforms and elements can be moved and redesigned in case of tree or forest health needs that may arise.
