Tree House: for the Birds
When a tree dies on a boulevard it is usually cut down and hauled away by the city. After much discussion in the neighborhood of Sunnyside the community decided that this giant old poplar would be turned into garden art instead of being removed. When the urban forester in Calgary drove me by this tree a few days ago I was surprised how it had taken on a new life. Dead tree to folk art - an amazing transformation!
