Because it does not have any metal fasteners in the tree trunk, this tree house is suspended from cables and it does not cause any damage to the tree. A steel collar has been suspended from cables that went through a fork of two branches in the tree.

The spiral staircase which connects the two floors is made of a peeled pine tree and the stairs are milled with a chainsaw. Just like the tree house, the stairs are not constructed with metal fasteners.
