These Tree houses or tree forts, structures constructed around, next to or among the trunk or branches of one or more mature trees while above ground level.

Tree houses are built usually by people for leisure and in some cases for protection from wild animals. In the tropics, some houses are either fastened to trees or elevated on stilts to keep the living quarters above the ground in order to protect occupants and the stored food from the scavenging animals.

Some of the Papuan tribes in southeast of Irian Jaya, namely the Korowai, live in tree houses constructed 40 meters high above ground level.

Tree houses are eco-friendly and do not require forest clearing and may be employed for use as above ground level housing in areas of difficult terrains.

The tree house before construction may come equipped with

  • A Stairway and Round-walk

There are numerable techniques for fastening the structure to the tree which while minimizing tree damage. The construction of modern tree houses embarks with the creation of a rigid platform, on which the house will be placed. At times platform may lean on its corners on the branches, in case there are not enough supports, the following can be provided for greater support,

  • Struts and stilts

Struts and stilts help in relieving weights onto a lower elevation. Tree houses supported by stilts end up weighing much lesser on the tree and thus help prevent stress, any potential strain, and even injury that can be caused by puncture holes. Stilts are anchored into the ground with concrete new designs, like the “Diamond Pier”, which is less invasive on the roots and also help accelerate installation time. Stilts are the best bet when it comes to supporting larger tree houses, and also increase structural support and safety.

  • Stay rods

Stay rods come into the picture when there is requirement for relieving weights on a higher elevation. These help control movements caused by the wind or even tree growth. Higher elevation and more branches tailing off decreases capacity and increases wind sensitivity; thereby these are not used commonly.
The building materials used for hanging are ropes, wire cables, tension fasteners, springs etc.

  • Friction and tension fasteners

Friction and tension fasteners are non invasive methods of securing tree houses used commonly. These are devoid of usage of nails, screws and bolts. These enable gripping the beams to the trunk by means of a counter-beam, threaded bars or tying, hence avoiding invasive methods.

All methods that use nails, screws, bolts, kingpin, etc are INVASIVE METHODS as these methods require punctures in the tree. They are designed specifically to reduce stress as not all species of plants suffer and survive puncturing in the same way, depending on the sap conduit’s path whether it’s in the pith or in the bark. We do not recommend nails; instead a very performance development called the tree house attachment bolt (TAB) can support greater weights, and is now commonly used by many tree house companies worldwide.
