Tree-o-Caching

10/02/17

 

(Scroll Down for Maps and Coordinates!) 

 

What is Tree-o-Caching?

Based on geocaching, it’s a real-world hunt for treasure using GPS coordinates. Something’s hidden, and you have to use a GPS device to find it. We’ve taken this concept into the canopy. Friends and customers of TreeStuff.com are hiding caches in trees and filling them with sweet gear from TreeStuff.com.

 

How does it work?

We post GPS coordinates for a public trailhead. Fill out this quick form, and we will send you the coordinates of the tree (this helps us keep people accountable - we don’t want someone clearing out the cache and spoiling the fun for everyone!) Try to get us during the week, we don't work weekends!

 

All you have to do is find the tree, climb it (Safely! Also, no spiking, spurs, hooks, gaffs, or other destructive climbing methods. Please leave the area exactly as you found it - don’t cut down any brush or saplings to try to get a better throw), and you get to take one item out of the TreeStuff.com cache. You don’t have to replace it, but we would love for you to trade in something of your own, maybe a hat or t-shirt from your tree business, no used gear please! Don’t forget to sign the logbook!

 

How can I do it?

When we geocache, we use a dedicated GPS device (ours is a Garmin Etrex), and that’s what we recommend for you. There are dozens of free apps for GPS enabled mobile devices that can get you similar results. You can even put the coordinates into Google Maps!

 

Share it

We’re offering a bonus if you send us a video of your Tree-o-Cache adventure! If you upload a video of your Tree-O-Cache adventure here, we'll send you a $20 TreeStuff.com gift certificate! Any photos or videos may be used on Facebook, Youtube, or any other TreeStuff media. Send your photos to media@treestuff.com and your face might get on TreeStuff.com or on our Instagram page!

 

Make sure your video shows:

  • you gearing up
  • you at the trailhead
  • you finding and accessing the tree
  • you opening the cache
  • whatever fun hi-jinks you got into along the way

 

Fine Print

We don’t guarantee the legality or safety of climbing anything, anywhere, or at any time. These trees have not been inspected, and the caches were placed by friends of TreeStuff - we have no proof that the trail, tree, or cache is safe. Use your head and make your own choices. We recommend using professional safety equipment and suggest having professional climbing training. Your safety and anything negative resulting from your Tree-o-Cache hunt is your responsibility.

 

The point of Tree-o-Caching is to have fun climbing trees, and if you get some cool TreeStuff stuff in the process, great!

 

Coordinates, pics and much more below the maps!

Coordinates

These are coordinates for parking/trailheads. These are NOT the coordinates for the cache. If any of these coordinates are in your area, fill out this quick form for the coordinates you're interested in, and we'll email you the coordinates of the cache.We’re excited to welcome you into the club, and we’d love it if you told your friends. However, in order for us to keep people accountable and keep a list of who’s hunting which cache, we’d prefer if you referred people to the coordinate request form for coordinates instead of sharing them.

A Photo History

 

"We went as a team and climbed the tree and it was one of the coolest things I have done in my 36 years of tree work."

- Timothy Zupke, TREE11

 

 


 

"I rushed down here after work... I hope treestuff does some more around PA, this was a very cool and also very generous idea for people in this community. Thanks so much!"

- Kevin Chambers, TREEO2

 

 


 

"...this was truly an adventure! An hour drive each way, lost keys, a trek through the woods, and creek crossing, and hanging out over the edge of a river keep my rope tail in my haul pack. Keep up the awesomeness treestuff crew!" 

- Scott Benner, TREEO2

 

 


 

"Me and the face behind the camera, my wife Gabe."  "Please send coordinates of TREE02. If it's close enough, I may try to hit that one too with my daughter."

- Nick Sanzone, TREEO3

 

 


 

"That was a tricky one I must say! I snagged some stickers and a hitch cord, Pat Dolan snagged a rope bag and some stickers. We put in Sun Screen, Bug Spray, RIT Hitch cord, Tree motion bridge, some safety shades, anti fog wipes, sterling hitch cord. You guys rock! Keep up the awesomeness! I don't think Pat Dolan has stopped yelling 'JAMBO!' since we found it yesterday at 2." "Oh and one other thing we put in there... every Massachusetts man's favorite thing... a winning scratch ticket."

- Bobby Cafaro, TREEO4

 

 


 

 

"We took advantage of the day and turned it into a little family outing. It was 350 miles round trip from Milwaukee, a quick climb, and a nice picnic in the woods. The location is a real gem hidden in a rather unremarkable area and I'm grateful to the volunteers that placed the cache for sharing it. Thanks TreeStuff for the great idea and a fun day."

 

- Benjamin Maurer, TREEO7

 

 


 

 

"My daughter and I circled back to Tree 14 last week and made it to the bucket. We had a great time so tell Bo thanks for his part in making it happen, and thanks to you all too for the great idea and the goodies."

 

- Jack Richardson, TREE14

 

 


 

"I had a great time with my wife finding and climbing this tree.  Beautiful, giant sycamore... thanks for setting it such an awesome tree."

- Nathan Smith, TREE06
