Climb (up) the tree

Hello,

I have heard both sentences. My question is what part of speech is "the tree"?

a) He climbed the tree (to get the cat down). >> "the tree" = Object?

b) He climbed up the tree (to get the cat down, >> "the tree" = part of an adverbial clause modifying "climb"?

Thank you,

N
