It doesn't matter if a person is a seasoned tree climber or completely new to the activity, the initial limb hoisting them up to the rest of the branches can often seem as far away as the top of Mt. Everest; the First Branch helps to solve that little problem. It essentially is a removable footrest that wraps around the trunk of a tree, effectively shortening the distance between the first branch and the ground.

Designed by JAILmake, the First Branch's foothold is made out of English Oak wood and finished with a ratchet strap cotton. It packs down enough to fit into a small bag, which is convenient when toting it to the park. Made in South London, the First Branch comes in a screen-printed canvas bag.
