Climb With Us

A tree climb with Canopy Watch is more than just a tree climb. Our experiences inspire you with a new perspective on yourself, on trees, and on your place in the natural world. 


We are a conservation and education nonprofit organization. The dollars you invest in a climb support activities close to home and around the world.


We use the highest standards for equipment selection, climbing methods, and safety based on 25+ years of experience. We conduct scientific research on climbing methods. We know what best practices are and how to teach them to you.

We have been teaching tree climbing to scientists and the general public for >25 years, in multiple countries, and on three continents. We use the highest standards and equipment for safe and fun climbing, and adapt methods to your needs and ability.

We are headquartered in Southern Oregon. Our climbs usually take place in city parks in Ashland and Grants Pass, at our facilities in Merlin, and sometimes in Boise, Idaho.

But we can travel to you too!
