    Do you want them to be able to climb on this tree?

      This is a potentially dangerous situation and I cannot overstress that you should get a pro involved and it must be tested before kids get on it.


      I would buy or find at the City Yard a real tree trunk with a few limbs still attached and make a base for it at least 10’ square. Make sure it’s been treated twice for bores and termites.

      You’ll need to drill at least 3 times into the trunk bottom and carriage bolt at least 4” into the trunk, through the solid 2x4 base that has 3/4” plywood on top of it, glued and screwed.

    Take a look at the reading Nook this Dad made for his daughter...
