A tree seat creates a sociable and relaxing area within a garden. The seat can generate a calming atmosphere that allows the visitor to view the tree canopy and garden from all angles. It can also draw visitors to an unusual specimen tree and help highlight its interest. A tree seat also provides shade from the sun for the visitor allowing a place to sit and admire nature. The seat wraps around the trunk of the tree and it can be enhanced by painting the seat white to lighten the area and focus the visitor’s eye. The seat can be made out of metal or wood to create a contemporary or rustic feel to the garden.
