From either North or South of Sullivan on US 41 you are going to want to drive toward the intersection in Sullivan with all of the fast food restaurants. Turn West and follow that road out toward CR450. When you find it, there will be a pink arrow pointing left, on your left. That road will take you right into it.
There were no dedicated on-duty referees while we were there, but I am informed we played outside of normal business hours, which could be an explanation for it.
Netting was affixed around every field I saw, expect the big tire speedball course; however there were poles erected to which netting could be attached in the future. I actually got eliminated at 6 feet away, because a car passed and I wanted to not risk shooting it by mistake instead of hitting the player who's back was to the road.
From what I saw, there was an airball speedball course, a woodsball course with quite a view makeshift bunkers setup, a standup speedball course with a bunch of monsterous tires stacked up for cover, and another field next to the Airball course.
Netting surrounded the airball course, but I noticed none on any of the other fields.
-Hours of Operation-
The field currently operates by reservation only, as Paul has other things that require his attention. It's kinda a bummer if you're looking to drop in on some pickup players, but if you have a group together, it's great.
Paul charges a $5.00 Field Fee (not bad considering I'm sure it goes right back into the field) and requires that you purchase his paint. Paint runs fairly cheap there and air isn't too expensive either. He offers packages of all-day air for both Compressed Air and CO2.
There really wasn't any clear announcement anywhere of the rules, so your stuck using common sense and your best judgement.
He offers CO2 fills, Compressed air and Nitro. There are also rentals available, Piranha's and Tippman's.
The Proshop is a work in progress. Doesn't offer a lot on accessories and stock, but the essentials are present.
Paul is a very friendly person. He really goes out of his way to take care of his customers.
There really weren't any designated referees present when we went. I'm told that we were a little early for normal business hours, so that may be why. We basically had people who were standing out start the games and somewhat officiate.
Treehugger's is apparently putting together a team called Eminence. For the most part, the players that I knew were associated with the team were friendly and easy to get along with. One of the players not associated with Eminence did however attempt to scalp a pair of Diablo gloves my friend left sitting on the counter. My buddy's outspoken girlfriend made sure that they were returned, and we let Paul know. You can't really control what kind of people show up at a public field, although.
I can't comment on the restroom situation because I had no need to seek it out while we were there.
He sold candy bars, and had a couple vending machines for drinks. Candy was $1.00, drinks were $1.25, reasonably priced.
I gave this field an 8/10, mostly because the reservation-only situation makes it hard to make a playing trip on a whim and expect enough players to make good games. If you've got a group, this place is a must to see. Just give Paul a call and see if he's available to set something up for you.
Thank you for re-writing your review. I appreciate the fair, honest review of Tree Huggers. If you ever do plan on going to Tree huggers, Private message me over pbreview because we go almost every weekend. we being team eminence, so if you plan on a day of paintballing , let us know. I couldnt make it to tryouts last weekend because of marching band :( whatever. thanks for the honest review.
Ya, believe it or not. If you were to reread my previous review, I did not bash the field in the slightest. However, I shouldn't have mentioned an unsavory event and expected it not to reflect on the field. I actually spoke with with someone from your team and we resolved our dispute with a fair compromise. Mistakes happen, and I think the most important thing for ourselves and our peers is to learn from them.
If you are a little in the dark as to what I'm speaking of, considering you said you weren't even there, you could speak to the member of your team that posts under the name Indyeminence. He knows a little more about the situation now, and it was great to have met the people that came.
