From Treehouses to Streetside Beauty, Trees Gain New Importance in Defining the Well-Lived Life

Walking through the World Financial Center yesterday, I had trees on my mind … new trees were popping up everywhere in my Battery Park neighborhood. I already live in the greenest urban center in America. But it seems that we’re going much greener, with New York’s MillionTreesNYC initiative.

New York’s MillionTreesNYC is a public-private partnership between the Bloomberg Administration and Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project that aims to plant one million new trees throughout the five boroughs by 2017.

New York’s plan to plant a million trees got a big boost from Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack awarded a $2 million grant to create green jobs and restore urban forests in New York City. The grant will create up to 20 new jobs in horticulture and forestry over the next two years for graduates of the MillionTreesNYC training program.

First Lady Michelle Obama planting a tree at Kenilworth Aquatic GardensBy now you know that I am a sensualist, drawn to nature not only for environmental reasons, but as a source of extraordinary delight, inspiring pleasure and creativity.

While I totally support Tree Huggers, I’m about PDAs of a different nature.

I approach tree-planting from a FOTUS perspective. After all, my former-partner’s kids once took about 20 photos of me, wearing kitten heels on a camping trip.

It’s OK; Michelle understands my style approach to gardening.

Many Cultural Creatives and Smart Sensuality women as a subgroup of CCs fuse fashion and nature in our minds.

From clothes to home design, we are inspired by nature. Prepare then to blown out of the proverbial design water with a big look at Pete Nelson’s glorious followup to Treehouses of the World, with New Treehouses of the World.

We can thank the LA Times for this morning’s positively stunning treehouse photo feast.

I agree 100% that the symbolic and positive power and goodwill that these treehouses inspire transcend words. In this case, a photo is worth 1000 words, and the LA Times delivers a big-picture photo review of New Treehouses of the World.

The treehouse above, called Free Spirit Spheres, was originally conceived as a spherical houseboat. It is 10.5 feet in diameter and is suspended by nylon ropes attached to three trees on Vancouver Island. Log on for a feast of a photo review of other tree houses.

Following the story of New Treehouses of the World, I have visions of living in a tree house. My home in Ohio, in those long-ago Victoria’s Secret days had many tree-house qualities, including three floors of glass in the back, looking onto a tree-haven ravine. 

Nature was always in sight, as it is from the Carversville windows and here in New York. While I love cityscapes and enjoy one now, it’s living with nature that inspires me.

Is WebUrbanist.com a good website? I don’t know, but it looks interesting just now. I don’t think I’ll get a pass to make a treehouse in New York, but who knows? We have a progressive mayor and a real estate meltdown.

What’s very interesting here, my dear friends, is the proliferation of alternative housing stories that appear, when you begin thinking like a Cultural Creative.

I just danced over to YouTube, and found that I missed a treehouse art exhibit in New York last fall. Note also that not all New Yorkers were impressed with this project.

Tree Houses Built in New York Park


As a bona fide TreeHugger says: “It’s not art, and it had better not damage the trees.” You decide, re the art part.

For a romantic look at tree house living, and a sustainable approach to this tree-house design, take a look at this positively beautiful Atlanta, Georgia tree house. Not only is this tree house beautiful, but it’s a reminder of what we’ve lost in modern life.

There are so many creative tree houses out there, these days. It's crazy but very cool!
