TREEfool was built to help adventurists like yourself do crazy things. This website will be the inspiration that pushes recreational tree ascension and sustainability to a completely new level.
How much do you enjoy camping out in the woods? A WHOLE LOT!? I assume so. Well treecamping will turn your horizontal trip into a 360° adventure! For inspirational tree camping stories “CLICK HERE” or if you want to learn how to tree camp yourself “CLICK HERE”.
Who controls our ability to try new ideas? We do. TREEfool was built on the concept of trying new things even if the old things were perfect. This sets TREEfool apart from the traditional backpacking and climbing websites. To understand this idea just look at the website’s progression since its conception. TREEfool began as a focus on solo “alpine style” adventures but has progressed over the years as a new form of backpacking which allows friends to be mesmerized by the forest treetops BELOW.
When I am too busy for a multiday adventure I like to hike out in my local woods and find challenging climbing routes. Have you ever looked at a massive old tree and envisioned a line up the cracks and scars to the crown? Why haven’t you climbed it? Right now recreational tree climbing follows the techniques of professional arborists. Faceclimbing trees is unheard of because static lines and heavy harnesses still rule the tree climbing world.
Are you still wondering why my website is called TREEfool? The answer: I’m deeply obsessed with nature and I do a lot of things to protect it even though it is all foolish. Foolish because my lifestyle is considered radical by most people. Foolish because I am one insignificant human trying to make a difference. Foolish because even if humanity overcomes climate change and (billions of years from now) the end of our sun there is still no intrinsic meaning in our universe. I am a fool 😉
Who is responsible for this silliness?
My name is Logan. I grew up on the endless prairies of SD but somehow found myself obsessed with climbing everything vertical. I started out as a rock and iceclimber but in my current state of MN I’m forced to drive at least two hours in any direction to rock climb. That’s why I started tree climbing and quickly fell in love with the feeling of climbing something that lives. I hope my website will inspire you to do the same thing.
I am a carfree, vegan, bjj-er, fitness obsessed, crazy man. My wife and son consume most of my life but I still manage to get out on a few trips each year. My idea of a fun trip is swinging in a hammock talking philosophy and science while staring at the stars with a good friend.
