a lost art?

The climbing tree

growing up, my friends and I were master tree climbers
there wasn’t a tree we couldn’t shimmy up in our neighborhood
and we built a tree house in the Willow in my parent’s backyard
but my grandmother had the best trees
we climbed to pick the freshest fruit on her apple and pear trees
and manuevering up to the top of the Butternut was a daily excercise
the view was spectacular!
this summer, when I spotted this big old tree on Cape Cod
it brought back memories of all those fearless climbing adventures
my question is
do kids still climb trees?
