How can we help you?

How to build your treehouse into a crooked or sloping tree:

Slight inclined trees < 10° are usually no problem with a stable tree trunk. However, the diameter of the trunk should be > 35 cm and the attachment point should not be too high (< 3 m) so that there is not too much leverage.

Consider how you will align the platform and where the main loads will act:

  • Where does the leaning tree want to tip?
  • Where do I position my treehouse to relieve the leaning tree?
  • Where do I install my Tree Screws?
  • Which Tree Screws can I use? GTS Top is only suitable for straight trunks!
  • How do I fix my support beam? Does it have enough space?
  • How do I fix a triangular construction in a leaning tree?
  • What happens if there is a strong wind or snow load, or if the ground is soggy after heavy rain?


If the treehouse tree is more inclined (>10°), you might want to transfer part of the load to stilts to relieve the tree. You can find more information on this topic under: Which tree is suitable for building a treehouse?
