This is a firewood pile Christmas tree that is made of live oak limbs and small twigs. One of my galleries asked me to help them figure out a christmas tree this year . We were playing around with some curly mulberry branches for other displays and I went home that night and had a dream of snowy trees . I woke up with the idea to use tree branches stacked into a cone . This is the result of overnight thinking never push a project untill you have all the answers. The gallery owners improvised with the lights and ornaments for people on the street just come in to see the tree take pictures and carry good tidings of a great tree to others. All this and Heaven too.

Crazy!

It took me awhile to realize what you were talking about…
... then, POW ... right in the kisser!

You stacked wood up into TREE!

Very UNIQUE… and very CLEVER!

You realize, of course, you have quite a Fire Hazard there?! LOL

Beautiful…

I’ll bet it smells REAL GOOD TOO!

... if there is a fire place around, you can just start FEEDING it… after Christmas! LOL

Thank you.

Wow!!! What a great way idea. Looks amazing and since I’m not much of an old fashioned Christmas tree guy this I would love to do one year. I appreciate the simplicity of the ornaments too.

Great idea… and looks fabulous. ... and the recycled limbs/branches saved the life of another tree, as well.

That is the best way to solve a problem. Sleep on it and your brain has nothing else to do but concentrate on your project and give you the answer in the morning. Nice solution on that one….........Jim

Beautiful idea, you don’t have to water it and you won’t be picking up dead needles.
