Just like us, trees are living breathing organisms, each with their own individual set of strengths and characters.

It would be useful for us to share any knowledge with others within the Sky-Pod community here.

In high-winds we recommend either lowering Sky-Pod down to ground level, roping off to adjacent trunks/branches or deploying guide ropes & ground pegs for added stability.

You should not exceed the manufacturers maximum load capacity of 250Kg/551lbs.
