With its striking orange color, Treevolution draws attention to man-made landscapes and warns of the disappearance of natural green spaces.


„Treevolution is a trio of 21-foot trees made of recycled municipal water pipe and PVC. The branches are arranged in a helix and festooned with bright orange construction fencing. Standing starkly artificial and toy-like in a natural environment, the cheerful trees bear an ominous message: amidst wanton growth and development we run a great risk of destroying vital natural green space and may someday be stuck with only fakery.“ (Amy Scofield)
