Standard Set of five Tree Hoppers used to create play flow off the end of an ADA Transfer Station. This is one of the most common uses for them.

Best for ages 2-5 years
and 5-12 years.

Bears Playgrounds Tree Hoppers are "Nature Inspired" art work, that kids can play on!

They can be used as seats or stand alone play events (hopping from one to the next). They can also be used to "functionally play link" other play events or to access lower deck structures. Kids walk, hop, skip and jump from Tree Hopper to Tree Hopper on our artistically arranged layouts. Heights vary only a few inches from one to the next, and possible configurations are unlimited. They are beautiful and functional.

The Tree Hoppers can also be combined with other free standing events to create a "ninja course" type obstacle course.

As part of our Natural Playground collection, our Bears Playgrounds Tree Hoppers are hand made from solid cedar log bases which support random size, species, and thickness tree cookie tops. Because our tree hoppers are made from real trees they will have or may develop cracks, checking and other imperfections the way nature intended. Tree Hopper Tops may have to be replaced every few years.

In an effort to always make improvements to our products, our method to manufacturing the hopper tops has varied through the years. We currently use a plywood base for support, along with a "rope-in-grove"' method around the outside edge. Lastly, we apply a durable paint to the top surface similar to what is used on back decks of homes. This helps with additional grip, along with prolonged life.

Installed at varied heights and complete with in-ground footers to comply with ASTM for ages 2-5 or 5-12 depending upon height and spacing. They can ship knocked down in a crate for onsite assembly or you can hire our team to deliver and assemble it for you. $149 each, set of 5 $745. FOB our shop in Lima, NY 14485.

Current standard Tree Hopper top. you will see a painted top surface for additional grip and durability. It also has a "rope-in-grove" method around the outside edge. Finally, there is a plywood base for additional support. Tree Hopper tops will need to be replaced every few years. To make replacements easier to install, new hopper tops can be ordered and mounted to the same in-ground posts as the previous hoppers were attached to so no new footers need to be dug.
