As we began the building and planning process here at Navitat, one of the first steps was bringing a certified arborist out to inventory the trees. They completed their inventory, and let us know which ones are sustainable, strong and healthy enough for our activities. During that process, each tree is labeled with a letter and number. Tree K-8 became one of our favorites, and is now known as Kate.
Kate is the site of one of our most unique platforms, and actually boasts a double platform. As a 130-foot tall Tulip Poplar, Kate is certainly large enough to house two platforms! We built a log staircase in the trunk that takes guests from one platform to the next, and it’s become a favorite of most guests. Several have remarked that Kate feels very Swiss Family Robinson, and we’re satisfied with that comparison. However she’s described, there’s no doubt that Kate is part of what sets Navitat apart from other canopy and zip line tours, and we’re thrilled to have her!
