FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS & INFORMATION
Where can I purchase a Monkee Tree?
We currently have retailers in Australia and New Zealand. Contact details are on the Where to Buy page. More retailers to follow. You can also purchase Monkee Trees on our website.
Do I have to screw a Monkee Tree to the floor?
No. Securing your Monkee Tree using the supplied wall brackets and screws is normally all that is needed. If however you are installing your Monkee Tree outside or want a free standing Monkee Tree then screws into the floor/pavement is required.
Can a Monkee Tree be free standing (not attached to the wall)?
Yes if secured to the floor/pavement (or paving stone 17.5" square or larger) a Monkee Tree up to 18 Trunks tall does not have to be secured to the wall. However it is preferable to secure a Monkee Tree to a wall as this provides the most rigid installation. Free standing Monkee Trees, while perfectly strong, will flex a little.
How high can the Monkee Tree go?
We recommend the maximum height of 12ft (3.7m), without an intermediate landing.
What weight will the Monkee Tree support?
Monkee Tree branches will support cats up to 27.5lbs (12.5kg).
What surfaces can I mount a Monkee Tree?
Timber decks or floors, concrete floors, paving squares. The Stump accommodates sloping ground surfaces.
What will happen if someone stands on a Branch?
The branches are not designed for humans. They are designed to fold down when overloaded to prevent people from climbing up your Monkee Tree. The Branches can be easily replaced should one become overloaded.
One of my steps is broken. How do I replace it?
