Treehabilitation: “See how Nature grows in silence…We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

Asheville, NC treehouse builder Adam Laufer on connecting with trees: Being in the trees allows us to commune with the natural world, an experience often missing in our modern lives. A treehouse is a safe-house from the techno-distractions of our busy human world. Do you have ideas about ways to help humans and human communities connect with and deepen their relationship with Nature? We build treehouses to help families, individuals and groups connect. What do you do? How do you see Nature bringing wisdom to human beings? Let us know by commenting on this post.

What is Treehabilitation, anyway?

Treehabilitation = human beings going to the trees and forest for centering, spiritual connection, learning and growing. In this way, we receive healing from the trees and from Nature. At World Treehouses, our goal is for all of our projects to succeed in “treehabilitating” our clients and visitors to our treehouses. We work with this in many ways, but the bottom line is that the relationship between human beings and Nature is the reason we build treehouses, tree platforms, bridges and other projects in the trees.

Do the trees want to be built in?

Do the trees want to be built in? This is a very important question to ask, especially if you are trying to form good relationships with nature. How hard would it be for you to go outside and ask? Would you feel embarrassed? Or scared that you wouldn’t understand? Most of us talk to our pets, and we are pretty good at understanding them, so why not trees? They are alive as well. Go ahead see what happens. If you spend enough time with them, you will get to know them like one of your animal friends. Happy New Year. Talk to trees! Adam
