Having a treehouse in your yard is a guaranteed way to have endless hours of fun and excitement with your children. Building a treehouse is a great bonding experience that will create memories that will last a lifetime. There are some things to keep in mind as you start building, however.

Always have a plan for where and how your treehouse will be built. Not every tree can accommodate a treehouse and some require quite a bit of planning to figure your how it will fit. If a tree is damaged during building, the tree will eventually die and the treehouse will need to come down.

Trees grow

Trees are a living species, which means that even though there a treehouse in them, they will still grow. Your treehouse needs to accommodate tree growth that will happen. Also paying attention to the wind speed and direction that comes from the tree is vitally important. There are different ways to attach the parts of your treehouse, and the decision will depend on your tree moves.

Good Plan

Planning out how everything will be attached to the tree is another important thing to think about. Some tree branches cannot support the weight of the materials you may be using. Using bolts in trees is the best way to secure all your parts and pieces, but where the bolts are placed also requires planning. Placing bolts too close together can cause damage to the tree that will not be able to be repaired since the tree is a living species. Find Complete Guide to treehouses here.

Simplicity

Always try to remember that less is more. Putting too many materials or bolts into a tree can eventually cause damage. Always use the least amount of equipment when building.
