The Treetop Retreat Seat is a large, comfortable hammock-like chair which can be attached to a suitably sturdy branch of a suitably gorgeous tree at any height.
The seat is raised, lowered and held in place using a basic arborist climbing and suspension system.
Ensure, of course, that your route
to the branch of your choice is clear or clearish of obstacles. Climb in and fasten the seatbelt and simply haul yourself up (made simple by the tried and tested aborist pulleys).
Remember to fill the handy pockets within the chair with reading materials, drinks and
snacks and remember to have a wee beforehand, and away you go.
Swaying amongst the branches high above the ground you are far away from the hurly-burly and can snooze, read or just sit and think in perfect, leafy peace.

Now add your pulleys and we're on our way up the tree. [xandram, Jun 02 2006]
Just sit, relax, calm your restless thoughts, take a deep breath and...
...pull the trigger. [2 fries shy of a happy meal, Jun 03 2006]
