Tree climbing is a recreational activity that is enjoyable, provides great exercise, is cost-effective and can be done year-around. It is a sport that provides people of all ages a chance to enjoy nature anywhere trees are available. You can perform tree climbing with very basic gear such as ropes, helmets and tree-climbing spikes. Tree climbing spikes, or spurs, are available from various suppliers.
Eders is a professional bowhunting shop that offers sports tree-climbing spikes.
