There’s a train station in the Northeast suburbs of Osaka, Japan, which proves that man and nature can coexist in harmony. Its main feature is a giant camphor tree, stretching out through a hole in the platform. Officials believe that the tree is about 700 years old and its history is full of loving people and a little bit of superstition.

#1 The Tree Was There First

Deforestation has a significant environmental impact. Many studies suggest that is a contributor to global warming; it impacts the water cycle by reducing the amount of water in the soil and air; it contributes to soil loss; and it results in a decline in biodiversity. We can either work with nature, or work against it. On this spectrum, these architects have decided to find a middle ground: instead of chopping down trees and building their houses, the trees are incorporated as a part of the...

You Can Strap This Spiral Staircase Onto Any Tree Without Tools
Gingerina
09 jul 2015 12:17

Designers Thor te Kulve and Robert McIntyre have devised a clever system that allows anyone to build a spiral staircase up the trunk of a tree without actually hurting it and without using tools. Their innovative staircase is made of birch steps that hold on to the tree trunk with straps and grip its side with thick neoprene pads. Attaching a series of these steps, along with an accompanying handrail, creates a spiral staircase.

Bios Urn Will Turn You Into A Tree After You Die
Gingerina
12 mar 2015 10:47

Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn designed to convert you into a tree after you die. The urn is made using 100% biodegradable materials, coconut shell, compacted peat, and cellulose. It has two parts – a top capsule with the proper medium to allow a perfect germination of the seed, and a bottom cone where you can place the ashes. Once the urn starts the decomposing process the tree roots are already strong enough to contact the ashes and grow through the Bios Urn.

The idea of coming full circle and returning whence we came from is one that appeals to many of us, regardless of our faith (or lack thereof), and this is an idea captured perfectly by this beautiful new burial method developed in Italy. The Capsula Mundi project by designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel has developed an organic, biodegradable burial capsule that will turn the deceased’s body into nutrients for a tree that will grow out of their remains.

What Started Out As An Ordinary Tree Ended With An Epic Creation

This Reddit user isn’t a professional. He isn’t a contractor. He is just a simple man who had a simple task: to build a treehouse. He was helping out a friend in wine country who wanted to add a treehouse to their property (probably just to make it even more insanely beautiful). So, after arming himself with hours of research, he got to work.
It took 57 days to build this “DIY” treehouse. The materials cost him about $5,000 (although he had some door frames and other supplies himself). In...

Bloodwood Tree

The bloodwood tree (Pterocarpus angolensis) is a deciduous tree with a high canopy, reaching about 15m in height and has dark bark. The red sap is used traditionally as a dye and in some areas mixed with animal fat to make a cosmetic for faces and bodies. It is also believed to have magical properties for the curing of problems concerning blood, apparently because of its close resemblance to blood. The name bloodwood for these trees stems from the dark red to brown sap that accumulates on...

South Korean artist Myoung Ho Lee hangs enormous canvases behind trees, creating a real world backdrop for his photo series, “Tree.” Lee digitally removes the cranes and other equipment used to erect the canvases for an effect that is both simple and surreal. He has been taking the photos around the South Korean countryside for the past ten years. For more on Lee’s series, see this New York Times interactive feature.
