Setting up our Tentsile Tree Tent

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. [1] Like tree houses, a tree tent may be accessed via a rope ladder[2] and provide a sheltered environment for recreation and various outdoor activities.[3] The portable nature of this type of shelter provides for more versatile location choice than a conventional tree house or a camping tent.[4]

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. [5] 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.[6]
