Climbing on a tree?

To be able to climb a tree as much higher as possible is an adventure that one never forgets. From that height to see the hills or the plantain views is a memory that we all cheer for ever. If you ever climbed a tree near a sea side, then you will know what it feels to be a lighthouse.  But tree climbing is dangerous and not advisable to each and everyone.

I would never ever advise tree climbing to anyone. Each and every sports has its own regulations. Always maintain your safety and instead of climbing tree, give that tree a big hug so that it lives for more and more years and basks in your love and care.
