Choosing a Tree for a Tree House
The first step to having your own tree house is choosing a tree or trees (some tree houses span two or three trees).
Take a walk around your garden and consider wether you prefer your tree house hidden or visible. How close are your neighbours? Think about who will use the tree house -- adults or kids.
Tree houses for kids should be kept close to the ground. The perfect tree for a tree house is not too young, not too old and must be healthy. Apple, oak, ash, fir and beech are some good choices.
