|The tree house art car, built on Vancouver Island, will bring a bit of the forest
to the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, USA.
How do you celebrate BC trees and forests while in the treeless, water-challenged Nevada desert, site of the Burning Man Festival? Bring a bit of the forest along with you by building a tree house art car, then invite the crowds in among the trees.
That is what a group of Vancouver Islanders are doing with their creatively converted old school bus.
"It's a nod to the BC forest," stated one of the participants working on the project.
|Work in progress - the forest is growing.
Some nice BC wood was used on this tree house project, which is currently spreading the sweet smell of tree sap over the dusty flat lands of Burning Man.

"People all have great memories of tree houses when they were little, whether they fell out and broke their arm, ate a mud pie, made out for the first time or read Playboys. And it’s a nod to the B.C. forest.”
