Here's How To... Build a Treehouse

Trees should be selected that have large, strongly connected limbs on the lower part of the stem. Selectively prune away branches, sprouts and twigs that, when weighed with rain and propelled by winds, will not slash sideways or up and down into the area of a treehouse. Make proper pruning cuts to remove branches. Do not use pruning paints on any wounds.

Treehouses should be designed to rest upon major branches and to nestle around the trunk. This will minimize the need for any injurious attachments. Remember trees bend and twist in the wind, so simply jamming or wedging boards between branches or into crotches will lead to failure.
