About Our Roots
Our main teaching location is based in Oregon City, Oregon, about 15 miles south of Portland. We are nestled amongst an oak savanna, rolling hills, running creeks and a maturing mixed conifer forest. With a 150 acres to explore, climb and camp, our basecamp is truly a tree climbing Mecca. Sunrises are filled with birdsong, sunsets from the top of our trees are magical and star gazing is one of the best spots in the area.
Founded in 2010, Tree Climbing Planet’s team has safely led thousands of ascents into the canopy. Drawing on the standardized curriculum co-developed by founder Tim Kovar and Tree Climbers International, we have created a variety of courses designed for every level and objective.
We continue to be inspired by nature, tree-time, and the people that the trees bring into our lives.
