Lumber Giant Weyerhaeuser gives back with a collection of tiny trees. – The Experience
Located at Weyerhaeuser headquarters more than 100 trees sit on 50 tables including mini-gingkos, junipers and olive trees, some more than a century old. The trees' dwarf status results from their small containers and frequent clippings. Originating in Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Canada and the U.S., the styles range from "formal upright" to "cascade," in which the tree's trunk arches over the sides of the planter and droops down below the planter.
The park-like museum was designed by Seattle landscape architect Thomas Berger in 1989. Weyerhaeuser created the collection to honor the cultures of its Pacific Rim customers. If environmentalists raise eyebrows over the claim that the collection has "been carefully grown and tended for years or generations, just as Weyerhaeuser carefully grows its trees and manages forests for future generations," they at least can't fault the company for putting together one heck of a display.
