A tree tent is a camping tent designed to be set above the ground, usually attached to or supported by the neighboring trees. Like a tent, it must be a complete enclosure that can house a camper and his or her gear while suspended off the ground.  Like tree houses, a tree tent may be accessed via a rope ladder and provide a sheltered environment for recreation and various outdoor activities. The portable nature of this type of shelter provides for more versatile location choice than a conventional tree house or a camping tent.
Tree Tents also have the ability to be set up on the ground if there trees aren't abundant. The tree tent market has exploded in the last year with a variety of innovations, as more outdoor gear brands invest in research and development these tents have become lighter and are able to hold more weight.  Setting up a tree tent can be a bit tricky the first few times, but once you get the hang of it (pun intended), it gets easier and isn't any more difficult or time-consuming than setting up a regular tent.
Some tree tents have the capacity to house 6+ people.
