Trees And People combine architecture and arboriculture to create tree tents that improve the link between humans and nature:
Trees And People were born out of a desire to allow the general public to enter the intimacy of the tree canopies of urban parks. This structure would allow individuals to experience the hidden world within the trees in an attractive, comfortable, and safe way. The result was the tree tent, an octagonal, tent-like structure that can bring you face-to-face with nature without sacrificing comfort.
The tree tent boasts an impressive 170+ square feet of floor space with a galvanized steel support structure and a double tent roof. The specialized mounting system requires only two trees to install and leaves no physical damage on their trunks. Installation can be completed in under two days, and Trees And People can connect you to one of its many arboricultural professionals to assist with maintenance of your tent and also the trees that support it. Trees And People allow you to experience all the wonder and beauty of nature without leaving the safety and comfort of your tent.
NO TRACE, the key to trees. It is a philosophy that has lead us to find methods that are favorable for harmonious cohabitation between trees and the man of our times.
To build this link without any damage to trees, we are developing equipment that is durable and totally reversible. Nothing is put either in, or on the ground. No trace whatever will be left on the trees, even after decades of cohabitation. All research is conducted to ensure to respect and conform to European safety standards, the most demanding safety measures for users and the protection of the environment.
To do this, we always keep in mind that a tree is capable of opposing with an exterior pressure through a thrust in its growth. This ability has limits that no scientific study has yet measured, but experience has proved that it is possible to attach to trees without damaging them or stopping them from growing naturally. If these measures are respected, applied and followed, the tree can deal with them without fear of any damage.
Over three years, on growing beech and oak trees, we tested constant fittings supporting a weight from 500 kg up to 2.300kg. After dismantling, we could confirm that the only detectable trace left on the trunk was the absence of moss that had grown on the fittings and not the bark.
