By: Simonne Ouimette. Climbing trees is not the easiest thing to do. It takes a whole lot of concentration. You have to be very careful while you’re climbing, so that you don’t misplace your foot and slip. You also have to watch where you put your hands. If you’re not paying attention then you could fall, and I am very positive that you wouldn’t want that. . Climbing up and down a tree (Safely/the right way). Before I tell you the rules, you want to make sure that you find a good climbing tree and that you can reach the very first branch. If not, then you should try jumping (only to that first branch), and if you still can’t reach the branch then go find a different tree.
Steps to climb up! <ul><li>1st) You need to make sure that your hands have a good grip on the first tree branch. </li></ul><ul><li>2nd ) You need to pull yourself up the tree. You might have to put your feet on the tree to help yourself climb up. I recommend that you do put your feet on the tree, because that will make it easier to get up on the first branch. </li></ul><ul><li>3rd) Once you feet are up the tree and your hands are safely wrapped around the branch, you should be hanging upside down. Now you wrap one of your legs, left or right, (I prefer right) and then you pull yourself over the branch so you’re sitting on top of it. </li></ul><ul><li>4th ) Now you’re going to want to look for a branch that is thick and close to you. Then you grab that branch. You might need to stand a little. </li></ul><ul><li>5th ) Then you carefully stand up. If you stand up too fast then you could slip, so stand up carefully. Not too slow, but not too fast. </li></ul><ul><li>6th ) You need to make sure, before you do anything else, that your feet are securely on that bottom branch, so when you go to move you don’t fall. </li></ul><ul><li>7th ) Then you pick up one leg, and you either put your foot, or your knee onto the next branch. Make sure that you have your hands securely on that branch. </li></ul><ul><li>8th ) Then you pull yourself up and onto the branch. </li></ul><ul><li>9th ) Then all you have to do is keep repeating steps 1 - 8 . </li></ul>
<ul><li>11th ) Now to get down you need to look down to the branch below you. </li></ul><ul><li>12th ) Watch where you’re stepping, but you still need to watch where your hands are. </li></ul><ul><li>13th ) When you’re going down the tree, if a branch is too far away, then just go very slowly and be very careful. </li></ul><ul><li>14th ) Once your foot is on the next branch then move your hands down to the branch that you just moved your feet from. </li></ul><ul><li>15th ) Then all you do is repeat the steps 10 - 13 . </li></ul><ul><li>16th ) When you get to the bottom branch, where you first started, sit down on it. </li></ul><ul><li>17th ) You can ether swing down, hang down, or you can just jump down to the ground. </li></ul><ul><li>18th ) If you choose to jump down, you want to make sure that it’s not too far of a jump, and that the space below you is clear. </li></ul><ul><li>19th ) By now you should be back on the ground. </li></ul>
Stuff you need! <ul><li>* You need a good climbing tree. A good climbing tree would have tons of branches. Almost all of the branches on the tree should be thick, so if you grab on or sit on top of a branch it won’t break or fall off the tree. And you need the branches in reach of your hands. If you can’t reach the first branch of a tree even when you jump, then go find a different tree. </li></ul><ul><li>You need a good pair of sneakers. There’s not a specific type of sneakers that you need, but they have to be sturdy. If your sneakers don’t have grip on the tree, then you should change your sneakers. What I mean by “should have grip on the tree” is that if your hands are firmly gripped onto the branch, and your feet are on the tree, but they are sliding down the tree, then you should change into a different pair of sneakers. Your sneakers are not supposed to be slipping down tree as your climbing. If you don’t have another pair of sneakers, then don’t climb the tree. You should only climb with slippery shoes if you know what you’re doing and how to be safe. If not then DO NOT CLIMB! </li></ul><ul><li>When you’re climbing a tree you should be wearing the right clothing. If climbing a tree, you should be wearing jeans or if a girl, wear capri’s, because if you’re wearing shorts you will get many cuts. You could also get splinters, so be careful where you put legs, and hands, and don’t rub your hands on the tree. You don’t need gloves, but you need jeans or capri’s (for girls). You can wear a tank top, t-shirt, or just a regular shirt. </li></ul>
Warnings <ul><li>1st ) You can get splinters. </li></ul><ul><li>2nd ) the tree might be wet, so it could be slippery. </li></ul><ul><li>3rd ) Watch the branches, so you don’t go on a thin branch, its snaps, and you fall. </li></ul><ul><li>4th ) You could get many cuts. </li></ul><ul><li>5th ) Don’t climb to high if you’re afraid to get down, or afraid of heights. </li></ul><ul><li>6th ) Don’t look down if you’re really high up and you’re afraid of heights. </li></ul><ul><li>7th ) If you’re sitting in a tree, don’t go to the very end of the branch because you won’t have good balance. </li></ul><ul><li>8th ) Don’t bounce in the tree. </li></ul><ul><li>9th ) Don’t lean over the edge of the branch that you’re on because you could fall. </li></ul><ul><li>10th ) And most importantly DON’T FALL! </li></ul>
What not to do!! <ul><li>* 1st ) Do not stand up in the tree without holding on to a branch or the tree, cause if you don’t hold on to anything then you could and might fall. </li></ul><ul><li>2nd ) Do not hang from your knees in the tree, because if you hang from your knees you might not be able to reach the branch and pull yourself up, and if you can’t get up then you will fall head first, ‘cause your hanging upside down. </li></ul><ul><li>3th ) You also should not swing from branch to branch or tree to tree. Even though it may look like tons of fun, you should never do that, because if you swing from branch to branch or tree to tree, you could fall in seconds. You could miss the branch, and if you missed the branch, then obviously you will fall, and get badly hurt. </li></ul>
Fun facts <ul><li>* 1st ) Climbing tree are fun. </li></ul><ul><li>2nd ) When you’re climb a tree, then when you just sit in the tree, you will have an amazing view of anything. </li></ul><ul><li>3rd ) Multiple people can climb a tree at the same time; just make sure that the tree can hold more. </li></ul><ul><li>4th ) If you go up to a tree or a maple tree, you can get sap. </li></ul>
!The End! <ul><li>Trees are super fun to climb, and they give you tons of space to think, or just to hang out. Now go find yourself a tree to climb. </li></ul>
