    I climbed up the tree.

    Dear Teacher,
    In a sentence of "I climbed up the tree," does the "up" function as a "preposition" or "adverb"?

    I'd be very appreciative of your assistance.

    Thank you iin advance.

    Soo

    Re: I climbed up the tree.

    Preposition - "up the tree" is a prepositional phrase answering the question 'Where did you climb?'
