This Man Spent 4 Years Growing A Church Completely Made Out Of Trees (Photos)
We've seen walls completely made out of tiny Lego bricks, but this takes the cake.
A New Zealand tree specialist is making headlines after crafting a life-size church out of shrubs and trees.
His name is Barry Cox, and he proudly spent four years putting the masterpiece, Tree Church, together.
Cox owns the nearly three-acre piece of land the church sits on, which made creating the structure possible in the first place. After all, you can't build a church out of trees just anywhere.
Art like this requires isolation from the real world!
According to Daily Mail, the naturally sunlit church seats up to 100 people but was originally intended to be a private space for Cox.
However, as friends and family began to show more and more interest, Cox decided to make it open to the public.
These days, the church is used for various events.
Despite using a mixture of types of greenery and trees, Cox stresses all of the materials used during this project were simply condemned trees being revived through the church.
In a recent interview with Stuff.co.nz, Cox said,
People know how much I love trees so they call me when there are trees that would otherwise be cut-down or removed. I go and kind of rescue them.
Now that's what it's like to actually be environmentally friendly!
