This man ‘grew’ a church from living, breathing trees
04 April 2017
Designer Barry Cox spent four years building the Tree Church, a living, breathing structure spread across three acres and the results are incredible.
Barry Cox has a love for churches, so he decided to construct one of his own using living trees and utilising his company, Treelocations.
The following trees were used in the construction:
• Alnus Imperialis – Cut Leaf Alder (Roof Canopy)
• Leptospernum – Copper Sheen (Walls)
• Camelia Black Tie
• Acer Globosum
• Thuja Pyramidalis
Construction started in April 2011 in New Zealand and the Tree Church is now open to the public for visits and private events.
