Pic Today 5/1/11


The Missouri Botanical Garden is proud
to host a TREEmendous summer of activities
in celebration of the U.N. International Year of Forests.

A juried selection of extreme tree houses is now on display,
together with a weekend of artisanal tree crafts and design,
including wood turning, violin making and
a chain saw artist who will turn a 5-ton oak tree trunk
into a carved grizzly bear (in 2 days time).

Come celebrate the beauty and importance of trees.


  1. It always amazes me friend .... I live in a house in a tree ....
    I love to know your country, your customs .... I like everything.
    I love trees!

  2. These are so cool. I think tree houses awaken the child in us, or is it the monkey? Yep, I would love to live in a tree house. Hahahaha!

  3. Would love to see these tree houses in reality

    Picture two, lovely to spend the night in this house :)

    Greetings, Susanne
