How One Person Can Build A Tree Platform

How One Person Can Build A Tree Platform

Theres plenty of bushcraft shelters with tarps or debris on the ground out there. This is the basis for a tree shelter. Add a roof, add walls or pitch a tent or hammock on it. Most platforms take two people and hauling a ladder out in the woods. This is the method for one person to construct one with little equipment. #Survival #Bushcraft #Treehouse

I think you're right about never having seen a video on a DIY 1-man tree platform. I certainly never have. Another 1st for RBM! Great video! Thanks for the effort it took to produce this!

One time I tried to use a big vine to climb a tree it broke , luckily I wasn't very high.

I have made very similar platforms with kids, and Grand Kids Scouting…Combining several sleeping pads you are able to pitch a 2 or 3 man tent on a platform like yours…* must tie down tent, and create safty rails around edge or the kids might end in a "Bouncy House" air bourne incident…It can also be made in a tri-angle to save on labor, and wood…Excellent site Dave…

Victor Martin says:

Excellent !! Good solid video sir. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Jenny Drumm says:

Very cool! I wouldn't have even thought this was possible!

One good reason to build a raised platform: zombies can't climb, can they? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Romaine Athey says:

I am sure you can still buy handbook with all info you need on woodprix. Just google it.

Playing in the woods ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband used these plans from woodprix and he's very satisfied.

BlindOwl Outdoors says:

you really make me think and am amazed how you know all this stuff, thanks again for the information and ideas

Nathan Anderson says:

Thatโ€™s an awsome fort thing sir. I myself like to go out and make forts in the trees and stuff!! I do have a question though how much was the mule tape for 500ft you got ?

Thx again for the great video and next week when I finally stops racing Iโ€™m going out there and doin it myself๐Ÿ˜€

I love how itโ€™s a one man job too and how awesome it looks!!

Watching from Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ!!

Paul Whitehead says:

Where did you pick up the mule tape i like iy better than 550 cord or rope

Thomas Adams says:

Why hello I have been watching you for a while, I live in Arizona so I am in the desert with the snakes etc, however I lived a long time in Ark and dang those bugs bite hard and then dig in. I do like your videos very much and will continue watching

Charles Bennett says:

Looks like a Native American or Indian burial tree

Michelle Pease says:

Great video. Liked the idea of the ladder for accessing the platform. Learned a lot.
Thanks

Bread and Jam says:

You are a great teacher thanks.

A word or two about bear claws and trees , polar bears have short hooked claws for grabbing / hooking into its prey , brown bears have medium length claws for digging as they are rooters like a hawg as they aren't much on climbing , black bears have long claws for climbing trees and with panda bears it is a cross between egg noodles and bamboo shoots so they have have sporks .

Your vids are the best!
What idiot would give a negative vote?

curtschannel says:

This is one of my all-time favorite videos! It spoke to my heart brotha! Lol.

Doris Reeves says:

I like this that he is from Georgia, authenticated with the one Georgian that I met early in my college life.
This also makes sense how deer hunters and wild economics could force people to live out of circumstances rather than affordability.
Rope from a hardware store and a saw knife from where? Then a military dude to show people how to build platforms for treehouses, hunters, homeless, etc.

I use tools from the early 1900โ€™s, and I carry all my gear on a 1977 Schwinn 1950โ€™s throw back cruiser with baskets on it.

Hannah Banana_25 says:

Iโ€™m not sure if everyone would have a handsaw ready in a survival situation. Also, as a girl I think Iโ€™d break my back lifting trees. Still good vid tho. I guess I could lash together some logs and put it on a strong enough branch!

Yikes says:

love your accent.
i find it pretty funny

"high up in the ARE"

Jack Woods says:

"…up thayuuurr…" lol. This guy needs his own TV show. He'd be an awesome Dual Survival partner. Such straightforward, lucid instruction and such a fine structure. Thank you.

Andre' Goods says:

is that 3/4 inch mule tape?

Dan Ban says:

I was just fascinated on your performance with this platform David,and making it with only one person was just a incredible sight! The only thing that I noticed was that the ladder should be tied,or bungee corded to the tree so hopefully the ladder does not get kicked out from under one's feet.Also I think a emergency rope should be hanged from one of the trees as a back up way of getting down in case someone kicks the ladder over,or it falls over unto the ground while being up on the platform.Thank you very much for sharing how to make this awesome platform that can be done by a single person.

richard hyser says:

In a jungle with bamboo you can do incredible shelters with same concept. A Bahile is an elevated platform. Put your ground pad down on the platform. Poncho. Bug neg. Line the bug net with bug spray where it meets the ground pad.

Jeff Adrian Despi says:

It is a great video man I love it

Beso says:

You rock dude!!! Just the information I needed to build my own elevated shelter. Respect โœŠ
