Legally Permitted Treehouse Deck
This is a Treehouse deck that is supported on one end by 3 living trees. We used the Garnier limb to support the majority of the deck structure. A partial height screening wall/ railing was used on one side of the deck to create privacy from the street.
A cable railing system was used where natural vegetation provides sufficient screening from the street. A Koy pond/ water feature borders the uphill side of the deck and provides the sound of continuous running water for added tranquility. The deck was built with stained cedar/ redwood decking, posts, and handrail which adds warmth and richness.
Quick Tips Before Building a Treehouse Deck
Before you start buying materials for your deck, find a mature and healthy tree that is structurally sound. The tree needs to be a hardwood species, such as maple, oak, hemlock or beech. Make sure that the tree has been pruned of dead leaders, branches and any falling hazards.
If you are unsure of a tree’s structural strength or health (infestation and disease are not always immediately noticeable), you may want to consult an expert.
