David Wiles and Drew Bristow are the founders of a group of tree enthusiasts aiming to explore, conserve and document some of South Africa’s greatest trees.

Their initiative, EXPLORE TREES, offers training and services relating to conservation, film, photography and adventure/recreational tree climbing.

“I wanted to show Africa’s beautiful trees to the world, bringing more awareness – therefore protection – to people who may not necessarily be interested in trees normally,” said Wiles in an interview with CNN. “It’s all about celebrating trees, educating people and preserving for generations to come.”

Check out some of their expeditions to climb giant eucalyptuses, yellowwoods and baobabs…
