Tree for climbing

    4 responses

OpShopGirl1 starts with ...
Hi all! Just need some advice please - we wish to plant a feature tree in our front yard. Hoping for something that is fairly fast growing & our kids will be able climb it. We would prefer evergreen, maybe even fruit bearing though that is not essential. Also, we live in Warwick, Qld. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

That would have been my first thought too Bangkok, but I wouldn't recommend any tree for climbing because of the possibility of branches breaking. The timber of the ice cream bean is about as weak as you can get, and I suspect that any fast growing tree would be.

I see, didn't know that inga breaks easy.

In that case a hardwood tree is needed, or maybe just a mango?

If the boys are from the 2017 generation maybe they like rubber tiles under the tree, just like in playgrounds. Maybe the stems also can get painted so they won't get dirty from touching it.
Real boys don't need that though.

I found inga edulis strong branches but with any tree a branch with a narrow angle can split off under weight but near horizontal branches can be very strong. otherwise keep within your capabilities and make sure there is a safe landing underneath.. The Inga tree shape can differ and sometimes there are not enough branches close together for kids to scramble on. especially if the tree grows straight up to reach light. If there is plenty of open space the inga should make a more compact tree and more suitable to climb. The fruit are highly suitable for kids to eat.
