Concept sketches of proposed seating at the site of the tree

Funding Needed for Forged Seats at the Tree Site

The blacksmiths plan to forge some artistic seating for the site around the tree. The proposed designs for park benches and small seats are based on grassblades found in the Strathewen area. They will be forged steel and will use traditional metal joinery. We are looking for funding to build and install these seats. If you can help, please email or you can donate directly to the account below. All donations very gratefully received.

Funding Needed for Production of a Book about the Tree

Over the past five years, many people have asked for a book to be written about the tree. We've finally decided to say yes and are currently gathering material. The book will include many images of the tree in production and a picture of each leaf. We also plan to include a map of the branches so, if you have sponsored a leaf, you will be able to locate the branch it is on when you visit the tree. Also included will be lots of behind the scenes stories from our blacksmiths and welding team. We're also planning to interview some of our international affliates and get their stories too.

If you would like to donate to get our seats and book into production, our account details are:
