From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Locally owned Canopy Climbers is an award-winning outdoor recreation business, guiding people into the treetops for fun, inspiration and adventure. We are recognized for utilizing "a sustainable practice that preserves, protects and enhances the natural environment in the City of Gainesville.”
What is the experience customers can expect?
Virtually anyone can climb trees. We use ropes and saddles to ascend and explore the forest canopy. Our safe, sustainable and user-friendly climbing system makes it surprisingly easy to climb into the treetops. No previous tree-climbing experience is required to enjoy our tree-climbing adventures.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Climbing a tree can create a life-long connection with our natural environment. Call it a "bonding experience" with nature, or maybe we can simply call it "LOVE." Regardless, this vital connection we experience while climbing trees holds the power to inspire and empower our hearts and minds.
What do you love most about your job?
I love watching people overcome their fears and vulnerabilities by doing something they never knew they would or could do. It's gratifying to see our guests feel empowered, accomplished and inspired as they stand at the top of a majestic tree, just a few feet from blue sky.
