Tree Tents on Hammock Town

So, maybe you’re new to this whole hammocking thing. No worries. No judgments here. But, it’s time to get you up to speed, don’t you think? The hammocking world is packed with plenty of ways to hang, but one of the most interesting ways to enjoy your comfy hammock is while suspended up in nature’s tree canopy. Enter one of our favorite kinds of hammocks: Tree tents.

What Are Tree Tents?

Picture this: You’ve hiked halfway up your favorite mountain route, and you’re ready to relax. You want to camp out for the night, but don’t want any critters or animals on the ground messing with your campsite.

So you look up. You latch your tree tent to a few trees 15 feet above ground, and you hoist yourself up into your awesome forest retreat using a foldable ladder. You call it your nest. You’re one with the trees now, and you never want to sleep on the cold, hard ground ever again.

That’s a tree tent.

Let’s look at some examples, shall we?

There’s this Trilogy Super Tree Tent that allows you and five of your closest friends to connect tree tents and craft the ultimate woodsy hang.
