New Zealander Barry Cox has seen many beautiful churches in his life and, inspired by their beauty, decided to create his own. Moreover, he chose living trees as a building material. They grow directly around the perimeter of the building and, with their trunks and intertwining branches, form its walls and roof.
The unique church was originally intended for private use, but turned out to be so beautiful that Cox did not dare to hide it from other people. Therefore, since October 18, 2015, it has been open to the general public.
The Tree Church (the “official” name of the building) is said to be formed by five types of plants: black alder ( Alnus Imperialis), Leptospermum, Camellia Black Tie, Acer Globosum and Thuja Pyramidalis.
