91 Treenovations

From Arboreal Body Paint to Caterpillar Leaf Notes

— November 18, 2008 — Eco
It’s no wonder that trees have been the source of so much arboreal inspiration. After all, in nature, a tree is an ecosystem in itself, purifying the air, providing a home to small animal life, giving shade to plants, and feeding insects and bugs with leaves and berries.

The treenovations in the cluster below exemplify the plethora of benefits a tree provides to the environment. From leaf lights and modern treehouses to solar-powered tree-shaped street lights, alternative fuel made from tree fungus and dead tree-inspired couture, it seems that treenovation is everywhere you look.
