Viewing deck in mature ash tree.

Tree deck showing tunk coming up through the decking timbers and branches going out through the handrail and balustrades.

A secluded viewing platform with a bird's eye view.

Our client enjoyed sitting in this tree so much, with it's view of Scattery Island in the Shannon Estuary, that he asked us to build a viewing deck where he could place chairs to relax with a cuppa or glass of wine.

The design incorporates the tree branches into the deck, with a hinged trapdoor entrance accessible from the trunk. We used rope access and climbing techniques and equipment to site the structure which is supported by the branches below.

Beginning the build by bringing tools and materials up into the crown of the tree.

Using a long ladder to site the tree deck cross beams in ash tree.

Ropes and a long ladder were needed in order to site the cross beams. Sited high in the branches, a project like this requires a good working knowledge of trees and the principles of tree surgery.
