With the weather getting warmer, DIY fever is hitting household after household! What spring projects are you pondering? What about some spring building? Tree houses or tree forts are platforms or buildings constructed around, next to or among the trunk or branches of one or more mature trees while above ground level. Tree houses can be used for recreation, work space, habitation, observation or as temporary retreats. We love tree houses, and they are perfect in hot summer days. Tree houses are built usually by people for leisure purposes, also for protection from wild animals. Treehouse hotels are becoming more popular all the time.
