Scale to great heights

Scale to great heights

Climb a wild tree. Why? Why not!

Take a friend, Dad, Gran… anyone! Dangle from a branch or take a book up high and listen to bird song. What better way to get wild?

Be careful if you see trees with fungus brackets on them, bark missing, or branches that don’t have any leaves in summer as they may be rotten and not be able to hold your weight! Check for bees nests or other animals as you wouldn’t want to disturb them either.

Just to point out the obvious; only climb onto branches that are wide enough (about 30cm) and stay close to the trunk - just remember all those childhood cartoon accidents!
