Slackfolding is Tree Weaves’ own version of scaffolding
One afternoon last summer the gang decided to make our own tree net style swing set to hang underneath one of our tree nets.

We are huge proponents of doing controlled burns in your private forests, for a number of reasons:
Sometimes our Tree Weaves require ladders to get up onto a platform from below…
For our Elder Arrow project we wanted the net to be seamlessly accessible by stepping off the top of a boulder, with no climbing required. To do this, we had to drill holes into the hard granite and place expansion bolts made for rock climbing…
Whereas before one had to climb up onto a platform suspended 4' in the air, access is now eased by this entry ramp, which one can simply step up onto from the ground below.

The Happy Hollow Weave is a platform weave suspended about 15 ft high in a grove of Poplar trees. The platform is walled in on all sides, and access is via a sturdy and easy to climb Tree Weaves webbing ladder.
The Picnic Basket Weave is a multi-level net located in West Asheville, North Carolina. It features an entry ramp, a large walled-in play area with a slackline, a spiral-tree-branch climbable area, as well as a higher appendix level, and a 3rd crows nest level.
The Elder Arrow is an arrowhead-shaped net that is anchored between 3 hickory trees and one huge boulder. The net is actually bolted to the boulder in two places so that one can simply step right off the rock onto the net with no climbing required. The structure is walled in on all sides, and features a portal one can climb down and out of to get to the ground level below the boulder.
The 3 sisters weave is a multi-level tree climbing playground suspended permanently between 3 giant red oak trunks rising from the same place in the earth.
