100% Made in Germany
We attach great importance to regional production and close cooperation with our manufacturers and suppliers – all our hardware products are 100% Made in Germany / Bavaria!
We want maximum quality and safety for our static load-bearing treehouse products. That’s why we only work with regional master craftsmen who can draw on decades of experience. Our trained master locksmiths and metalworkers all hold international certificates and diplomas.
Product optimisation in detail!
Our products are constantly being optimised. While building tree houses and through feedback from our customers, we collect more ideas to make our products even better – so our products are always state of the art!
We also place the highest demands on all the other articles in our online shop: these have been extensively tested by us and have proven themselves in tough continuous use. For example, we source our ropes from Liros, the drills come from Projahn, the wood screws from EuroTec, and the assembly tools from globally established quality companies Stahlwille and Hilti.

The KTL Coating – that’s why our parts are black
To prevent steel from rusting and protect it from corrosion, it must be coated. We have opted for a sustainable finishing method – the “cathodic dip painting”, or “KTL Coating” for short:
In this process, the steel parts are placed in a dip tank for a certain period of time. The dip tank contains a solution of water and black lacquer. The special feature of the technique is that the lacquer is not applied by machine but by means of a high voltage; the dip tank is the anode, the steel parts are connected to the cathode and immersed. In this way, the paint is not only applied superficially (cf. powder coating), but “fuses” with the outermost steel layer. The process is environmentally friendly, health-friendly and efficient, as hardly any toxic vapours (cf. galvanising) or waste products are produced.
In addition to increased abrasion resistance, the KTL-coated parts also have excellent sliding properties. The noble black appearance makes the parts disappear inconspicuously and harmoniously in the tree.
The parts are coated by the Lebenshilfe Werkstätten München, whose customer base includes BMW, MAN, Fendt and other well-known manufacturers. The LHWM works with disabled people, helping them in their everyday work and thus enabling them to lead a regular life. We are proud to be a partner of LHWM!
Research and development
The basis of our company is the close practical orientation and decades of experience of baumbaron GmbH.
In addition, there are six topic-related bachelor’s, master’s and diploma theses in cooperation with the Universities of Applied Sciences in Munich, Rosenheim, the UNI Aachen and the HNE Eberswalde, Uni Vienna and Stuttgart. We have combined all this know-how on our website: from worldwide research and personal interviews with the most experienced tree house builders, to computer-controlled FEM analysis, to practical test series.
At this point I would like to thank the universities, the professors, and our students, Tim Hellfritsch, Onja Hardorp, Ruth Orschler, Steffen Beck and Bernhard Dallhammer!
