Louisville, CO (December 7, 2015) – TreePod, the innovative new brand of hanging treehouses designed to enable outdoor fun and instill a love for the natural world in children and adults alike, recently launched on Kickstarter.

Garnering a collective 50 years of outdoor industry knowledge and know-how, the recreation pros at Canaima Outdoors developed the TreePod to bring the magic of a treehouse to backyards everywhere. Even where there are no trees, the available TreePod Stand creates a backyard adventure space like no other.

“The TreePod is lightweight, portable and fully removable, it’s the perfect solution for those who do have the time or resources or do not want to go through the hassle of building a permanent treehouse,” explains Ricardo Bottome, CEO of Canaima Outdoors. “As a parent of four, the TreePod has become a favorite and a fixture in our backyard.”

TreePod has partnered with Trees for the Future, an organization that is improving the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands. Since 1989, Trees for the Future has planted 115 million trees all over the world. Their work has demonstrated the transformative power of trees in helping people break out of the poverty trap while also addressing the global environment. For every TreePod sold during the Kickstarter and after a tree will be planted through Trees for the Future programs.

“TreePod shares Trees for the Future values of the transformative power of forests, trees and natural environments and the positive relationships people have with them,” says Bottome. “The TreePod and its tree-friendly design helps kids and adults enjoy their favorite outdoor spaces.”

A Kickstarter launched in late November and is already passed 30 percent of its fundraising goal. Kickstarter backers receive a significant discount from the projected retail price. Kickstarter funds will be used to bring the TreePod into production. Design, testing and prototyping are complete and TreePod is ready to become a backyard staple and will be available at retailers nationwide in the spring of 2016.

Parents and kids will enjoy the opportunity to spend more time outdoors with the TreePod set up in their yard or taken with them on a camping trip. Simplicity of use offers easy setup and take down while the over-engineered design ensures safety and peace of mind.

More information on the innovative TreePod, including the product introduction video and the opportunity to back the campaign are available on the Kickstarter page at Media inquiries can be directed to Patrick Brown at Pale Morning Media by email at
