The beautiful tree covered hills surrounding lovely Asheville, North Carolina. (Pictures featured here are from a past Treewalkers workshop in California.)
The workshop will focus on well balanced instruction of the skills required to install a treehouse platform using O2 Treehouses's Tetratruss platform system.
Skills Session - TREE INSTALLATION HARDWARE
ASSEMBLY OF THE TETRATRUSS SYSTEM: Raising the platform and completing the permanent rigging. Including 1 hour rotation where participants will have the opportunity to install an O2 Treehouse Treeton or TAB (treehouse attachment bolt) in a test stump.
RAISING OF THE TETRATRUSS SYSTEM: The Tetratruss platform will be poised and ready for hoisting. The whole Treewalkers team will come together in a joint effort to bring the structure aloft. This will be a glorious moment in the workshop as the skills learned throughout will be applied and proven. Participants will turn into functioning members of the installation crew as we assign guide lines, chain hoist functions and assist riggers to complete the operation.

INTRODUCTION & WEEKEND PLAN REVIEW
Skills Session - DESIGN & COMPUTER MODELING: Large group presentation of past O2 Treehouses, followed by a design your own treehouse charrette.
Skills Session - TREE SCANNING AND TREE HEALTH: A longer session of 3.5 hours during which teams will split up into rotations, moving between assembly of the Tetratruss system and Tree Scanning and Tree Health Skills Sessions.
Skills Session - KNOTS & TREE CLIMBING: Each team will rotate one round of 1.5 hours each between a Skills Session with instructors and assembly of the Tetratruss.
Skills Session - RIGGING & ENGINEERING: During this Skills Session, Treewalkers will rotate once again between assembly of the Tetratruss and instruction, 1.5 hours each. This session will run parallel with the O2 Treehouse crew's installation of the temporary rigging lines. Participants will be able to immediately apply skills learned to assist with this effort.
With the structure floating the team will continue to work to switch out temporary rigging lines with permanent wire rope rigging lines. The Treewalkers team will be able to see all of the skills learned in the workshop instruction applied and feel the satisfaction of a completed treehouse installation.
CLOSING CEREMONY: Participants will be inducted into the Treewalkers Society of builders! :)
FINAL BONFIRE & TALENT SHOW: Treewalkers are invited to camp the final night and join together for a last group bonfire and participant Talent Show.
Monday April 22nd - The closing ceremony will be held at noon on the 22nd. You are welcome to stick around and hang out after the ceremony - there may be an optional zipline tour at Navitat schedule for the afternoon! If you stay, you are welcome to camp an additional night on the land.
