Climbing a tree is number 1 on the list of 50 things to do before you're 11 ¾. To help you meet the challenge lots of our places are putting on tree climbing events which will help you to get up high amongst the tree tops. There are also some great places in our gardens, parks and woods where you can climb trees under your own steam.
