The tree is planted.

Posted on

For the last few months we have been busy building a rather large tree for a school.

They wanted a memorial tree as being a school for kids with disabilities unfortunately their pupils do pass away. The brief was an Oak tree with a realistic look rather than a contemporary or abstract appearance, that could have names put onto its leaves.

We chose to use a good mixture of materials to allow the tree to weather with its environment including CorTen steel for the bark which will go a nice deep brown/orange over time.

We had to have a hole dug and foundations concreted in to make sure there was plenty of support for the structure of the tree and then a few days later we installed the tree and it looks beautiful.  We also made a fence to go around the bottom.

Alison from DV Design Studio did a brilliant job laser etching the leaves. CLICK HERE to visit their website.

Now to get on with the next job, making some direction signs for some far away places and some closer to home.
