    There are two meanings. A new one to me is:

    Treetopping

    The concept of guiding people through the upper canopy of a rainforest originated in Costa Rica, where adventurous biologists devised new methods for accessing the forest canopy in order to conduct research on the undiscovered canopy ecosystem. The idea soon developed into a breathtaking form of eco-tourism which allowed people to enter and experience a previously inaccessible natural environment.


    The more traditional process of treetopping is for a logger to climb to the upper portion of a tree, about where the branches begin, and saw off the top of the tree at that point. It lessens the weight and makes cutting down the main trunk of the tree safer.

    Thank you, Mister Micawber. It should be the first one. I have googled it and found some information useful to me.
