This living, breathing, green church is a personal project long in the making for New Zealander Barry Cox. As a deeply religious child, he aspired to be Pope one day. But a deep love of trees (his business, Treelocations, rescues and relocates them) combined with a lifelong fascination with the ecclesiastical architecture eventually led to what he calls “Tree Church”—a beautiful merger of his passions.

That is quite an accomplishment, though to be honest the unnaturalness of his creation rather contradicts the intention for me. I've seen two weddings that took place in lovely natural groves of trees and these really struck me far more as a melding of church and trees.

I've never heard of rescuing trees. I like the idea.

The church is nice too although looks a bit like tree abuse.


(I don't like topiary either)

I was excited to see this when I saw the thread, but the actual pictures were disappointing. I was imagining something more natural and not as formally designed. I'm not a fan of the formal style of landscaping and design....I much prefer a lush, more natural look. But still have to give the designer kudos for originality.
