OUR WILD STORY
Wild Tree Adventures was based in Stirlingshire, a short distance north of Scotland’s beautiful capital, Edinburgh. Offering guided Tree Climbing Experiences at locations across Scotland, we worked in beautiful visitor attractions, botanic gardens, and treasured forests.
Our Tree Climbing Instructors invited you aloft to experience the stunning landscapes and forests of Scotland. Climbing over one hundred feet into the canopy of a towering, 200 year old giant you saw the world as never before! For all ages 6 to 60+.
In the beginning…
In the beginning, there was a tall, tall tree with a huge bird nest at the top of it. Given special permission to visit the bird, Tim climbed way, way, high up into the canopy to monitor the wild hawk who had its nest there. That was the first tree. Many other trees followed, all filled with the huge stick nests of protected wild birds and, with his scientist’s hat on (under his climbing helmet!), Tim measured and documented what he found, all carried out under licence.
In a forest many miles to the south, Tim met The Man Who Climbs Trees aka James Aldred of Canopy Access Ltd, who taught him to climb beautiful beeches and soaring redwoods including a whopper of a tree that forever planted the seed of intrigue and excitement. In what seemed like the blink of an eye, Tim was curled up safe and cosy in his hammock, sleeping soundly twenty-five metres above the ground in a Scottish giant, as if it was something, he did every day. And there he dreamed. He dreamed about adventures in the wild trees of Scotland. And he dreamed about sharing his passion for trees and the creatures who live in them with friends, family and all who wanted to explore the trees…
Tree climbing for everyone
Over several seasons as Team Leader and then Operations Manager for The Great Big Tree Climbing Company, Tim helped guide thousands of families, friends and students up fabulous trees across 20 counties in England and Wales. In 2018, it was time to make his dream come true and Wild Tree Adventures was born.
