Sam in a Hammock

Sam "Oak" Johnson

First trained in the vertical discipline of rock climbing, Sam was dismayed at the lack of exposed rock in West Sonoma County upon moving there in early 2007. Drawn to the redwoods, Douglas-firs and oaks, he discovered roped recreational tree climbing and hasn't stopped climbing since then.


Sam started Out on a Limb Tree Climbing in 2009, as a way for him to combine his interests of environmental education and challenge course facilitation. He is a trained Tree Climbing Instructor, certified Wilderness First Responder (WMI) and ACCT Level II Challenge Course Practitioner.

Oak also serves on the Board for the Global Organization of Tree Climbers.

Nick "Lichen" Earley

Hailing from Alexandria Virginia, Nick was inspired to start climbing
trees upon landing in Santa Cruz, CA in 2001 for his undergraduate
work in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.  Since then he has explored
the art and creativity of treehouse construction and roped tree
climbing of California’s coastal forests.

Nick is an experienced ecologist, environmental educator and challenge
course facilitator intent on sharing his knowledge, and providing
opportunities for personal growth and comtemplation in the trees.  He
is a trained Tree Climbing Facilitator, Wilderness First Responder
(WMI) and ACCT Level II Challenge Course Practitioner.
