Look! Building a Deck Around a Tree


The term “treehugging” sometimes gets a bad rap, though less so in the post-Inconvenient Truth-era. When we visited our family’s place in the White Mountains of New Hampshire this past weekend, we realized that the tree popping through the deck of their house reflects some hard core treehugging…

While building the deck, they insisted on preserving the trees. So they cut a hole in the deck for the beautiful pine to remain standing. Seems so logical, we wonder why more people don’t do this?
