Ace of Spades Garden Team
Ace of Spades Gardening Team

When the Ace of Spades Gardens team are carrying out tree work, it is not unusual to see a crowd gather to watch the skill with which trees are climbed, and branch dismantling and pruning carried out at high levels. None of this is as easy as the team makes it look from the ground.

We are offering Green Build visitors the chance to climb a tree wearing a full safety harness and supported by tree surgeons, to a height of about 4 metres. Your ability and fitness will be determined on the day; age and size are dependent on the ability to fit into the safety harness. You will be asked to sign a disclaimer. Claim your free bag of firewood as a reward for your successful attempt.

Please note, if there are adverse weather conditions on Saturday, the tree climbing may not take place for safety reasons.
