Public Tree Climb
Public Tree Climbing in Willie the Willow Oak at Blackwood Farm Park. We provide all the gear you need to safely get into the canopy for an unforgettable experience. Climbers need to be 6 years old or older to participate.
Three time slots: 10am, 11am, 1pm
If you need to reschedule or cancel your climb, you can do so up to a week before the climb at no cost. If you need to cancel or reschedule between 1 and 6 days before the climb, half of the cost of the climb will be refunded. Sorry, we can’t provide a refund for no-shows or day-of-climb cancellations.
If I cancel the climb due to inclement weather or other reason, I will do everything I can to reschedule you for another climb that works in your schedule so that you don’t miss out on a great opportunity. If we can’t find a time to reschedule you, then we will give you a full refund. We will generally climb in a light rain if it is not also too cold, but climbs will be cancelled for heavy rain or if thunder is heard.
