Statement: The Steel Art Tree, as handcrafted by NatureMaker, has originated five story oak trees in shopping centers, soaring banyan trees with magnificent cantilevering limbs and spreading aerial roots into children's museums, indoor palm trees in water parks, evergreen trees that clad columns in airport terminals, and a host of other eco-friendly designs that stir imagination and engage the visitor.
Green Statement/Products: NatureMaker's one-of-a-kind trees have been designed and manufactured to ensure minimal negative environmental impact throughout the tree's life cycle. The result of this approach is a tree that uses organic and recycled materials in its construction and clean technologies in its manufacture, including burnishing on the metal structure, VOC-free paints and environmentally safe adhesives.
NatureMaker's artistic trees are constructed of raw materials with a recycled content of 75%, depending on the design. Our artistic trees are designed for durability, ease of disassembly, and minimal maintenance. 50% to 75% of the component parts are designed to be readily recycled at the end of the tree's life
