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.
