Urban tree

When we cut down a Monterey pine tree near the front door because the roots were becoming destructive, it left a big empty place. After considering many alternatives, I made this ‘tree’ for the spot. It’s supposed to evoke the baobab trees we saw in Tanzania. It’s made of redwood, and the ‘leaves’ are glass made by local artist Bobbi Hirschkoff .
