Tree Inspection and Insurance
Treetop Explorer, LLC is insured for recreational tree climbing events & will provide proof of insurance upon request.
If your event is to utilize trees on your own property, we will schedule a consultation before the day of your event. An I.S.A. Board Certified Master Arborist will inspect your tree to assess its health and determine if it meets safety requirements.
While rates vary, all fees and associated costs are determined and presented prior to scheduling your event. Pricing is heavily influenced by the staffing needs and length of your climbing event, which is why we need and estimate of group size and age range.
To give a ball park idea of pricing, standard events begin at $355.00, which includes a 1.5 hour climbing window for up to 6 participants. A 2.0hr climb is typically appropriate for 10-18* climbers, and the price is $525.00.
*Total capacity is influenced by the # of climbing ropes we can place in a tree. If you desire us to provide approximately 6ft of spacing between participants, the capacity is reduced to about 10 climbers in a 2hr window.
Our recommendation for length of climb event is based on the time necessary for most groups to have enough time for all participants to get a 2nd ascent (or more).
All fees and associated costs are determined and presented prior to scheduling your event. We can adjust climb time, staffing, and logistics to accommodate most groups. As we work through the planning stage, we will provide set set price. This price covers all equipment, permits, and guidance for your group once you arrive at the climbing tree. (Note: Waukesha County Parks charge a $6/vehicle entry fee, not included in out price.)
All trees must pass our tree health assessment and safety inspection. When considering a private climb event in your own tree, we begin with a visit and consultation at your property in order to perform the tree assessment and discuss your special event.
Each event differs as to which trees are climbed. Many people wish to climb trees on their own property. We also have access to designated climbing trees in certain parks and various locations. All trees are inspected and must be approved prior to finalizing an event.
Treetop Explorer, LLC will provide staffing to accommodate the needs of your personalized event.
Only GOTC and Treetop Explorer recognized facilitators work with climbers on rope. Additional Ground Staff may be utilized for other organizational tasks.
Treetop Explorer, LLC will provide all of the equipment and gear necessary to enjoy recreational tree climbing safely. All equipment is inspected prior to each event, and double checked with each climber.
Climbing participants will need to be dressed in long pants and sturdy shoes. An assortment of gloves will be provided, but participants can bring their own.
Introspective participants need to wear comfortable clothes with no exposed zippers or metal snaps which could snag the aerial fabric.
There is a minimum age restriction of 7 yrs due to cognitive development and ability. There are alternative experiences we can provide for those under the minimum age and those with physical or cognitive challenges.
All participants need to sign and submit waiver prior to climbing.
Individuals under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not permitted to climb.
