Backyard Camping is so easy and amazing
Enjoy and nest with the birds in your very own Cocoon Tree. Basically, a Cocoon Tree pod is a spherical aluminum structure wrapped in a waterproof outer skin that weighs, all told, around 130 pounds. That lightweight profile makes it easy to rig up yourself, via a system of ropes and nets, in around two hours — or, if you prefer, you can have the installation performed by an experienced team of arborists/climbers working under the direction of Coccoon Tree.
This modern tree house is not just for wannabe Johnny Weissmullers, they’ve now become a luxury item – as demonstrated recently with the ErlebNest, HemLoft and MirrorCube. The aptly-named Cocoon Tree pod is not so much a house as a bed. It can be suspended amid the trees or erected on legs, assembled and installed without any particular skillset and comes in Beach and Jungle varieties. Anybody’s dream of nesting in a tree and wake up with the birds will now finally come true with the Cocoon Tree, which is a modern and an elegant take on the traditional tree house or cabin in a tree. To put it simple, Cocoon Tree’s are the spherical structures in aluminum covered with a resistant Ferrari quality tarpaulin designed to hang up on tress. Designed to be installed almost anywhere, the Cocoon Tree which can impressively hold the weight of up to a ton, is notably available in other different models, including the Cocoon Tree, Cocoon Beach and Cocoon Jungle.
There’s a 2.5-meter (8.2-ft) diameter plain wood floor inside, that’s been treated against moisture. Lying on top of it is a high density foam mattress with a protective cover, that’s big enough to comfortably sleep two adults.
If the pod is suspended close enough to the ground, users can just climb in through any of the three access points. Higher up in the canopy, the Cocoon Tree can be accessed via supplied black polyester netting installed as a walkway, which can also act as trampoline-like safety net should the support ropes give (although the company does stress that the riggings have a weight resistance of up to 1.6 tons/1.45 tonnes each, so the support should be secure).
