For five days, tree enthusiasts Brian French and Will Koomjian lived in the trees. Using innovative techniques and equipment, the team followed a one kilometer transect through the canopy of an oak forest in Northwest Oregon, staying above the ground the entire time.

Here Will Koomjian zips along a 32-meter gap between two oak trees. The team successfully set the long traverse without touching the ground.
