The third largest tree (trans-planted) kinda of a cheat - a sugar maple last documented here
was having a struggle with white tail deer in Bloomfield Ct. I built a the protective structure out of wood and burlap that was reminisent of Christo's central park gates. My father in law took it down
fearing that the tree would not get enough light, and has been spraying it with a deer repellent.
He told me he had "Good News!" the tree was maybe 4 or 5 feet tall and had four off branches forming an impressive crown. As with most supporting structure: containers, stakes, tubes, they are props or frames, of lesser importance to the sculpture/art/tree.
We are planning to take a tree to the Adirondacks- looking for the right site. This would be a place with majestic views of mountains and lakes and would address the philosophical question if a tree falls in the woods and no one heard or saw it would it matter?
