Here is my best explanation:

'tree' is the definition.
(elm is a kind of tree)

'regularly we climb' is the subsidiary indication.
'regularly' means one should take alternating letters (regularly take one letter, leave next etc.).
'we'+'climb'='weclimb'
The alternate letters of 'weclimb' are 'elm'.
