What we're about
Do you have carefree memories of climbing trees as a kid?
Do you simply love being in the outdoors, surrounded by the magic of nature and the laughter of like-minded souls?
Or do you just like trying out new sports or activities?
This meetup group was set up to promote recreational tree climbing as a sport and fun activity, to get people outdoors and excited about nature, and to make friends, all while getting some exercise.
Everyone is welcome to join :)
Recreational tree climbing is popular across the world and has its roots from the profession of arboriculture, where professionals (called arborists) climb trees to assess their health. Singapore's trees are in fact kept healthy and maintained by a dedicated group of arborists. In recreational tree climbing, we often use traditional methods of ascending the trees although some of our members have fun using fancy gear! Sports and rock climbers may find it a natural progression moving into trees as much of the gear/technique is similar.
So if you've never climbed a tree before, join us and experience the peaceful yet exhilarating experience of being high up in a tree.
