We're writing to introduce Pete Nelson, "The Treehouse Man" himself. For 25 years, Nelson has traveled around the world, creating the most environmentally sustainable, architecturally unique and whimsical treehouses in the world. These arboreal masterpieces showcase Nelson and his skilled team of craftsmen's boundless creativity (a team that just so happens to include his son, Charlie and his wife, Judy), pushing them to create everything from a spa in the sky, to a fantasy-filling canopy clubhouse, to the first-ever treeline brewery.
This year, Nelson and his company Nelson Treehouse and Supply (http://www.nelsontreehousesupply.com) are busier than ever. Nelson and his team are the subject of the Animal Planet series "Treehouse Masters" beginning its second season Friday, January 10th at 10pm. "Treehouse Masters" takes viewers behind the scenes with Nelson, his family, and his team of craftsmen as they work to create the ultimate dream treehouse for their diverse array of clientele. Each episode tells the story of a single, unique treehouse, and its evolution through the design and build process, and ultimately...the reveal to satisfied, stunned clients.
Also coming this spring is Nelson's sixth book, Be in a Treehouse, coming March 25 from Abrams. Nelson is the author of five previous books, including "Treehouses of the World" and "Home Tree Home." Nelson is co-founder of Treehouse Workshop and owner of Nelson Treehouse and Supply, and has been featured on media as diverse as USA Today, NPR, The New York Times and the Today Show and was one of Outside magazine’s “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Last summer, Nelson was a featured presenter at America's largest art and design event, Dwell On Design.
