Axel Erlandson’s Tree Garden

I’m not usually the type of person to reblog or steal photos off a bunch of sites, but I couldn’t pass this up. This is amazing. I got a book from Arcadia today (Images of America: Santa Cruz, California) that had a tiny picture and description of Axel Erlandson and his tree sculptures, which used to be up in Scotts Valley and the remains of which are now at the Gilroy Gardens. This is the beginning of a beautiful obsession.

Thank you to these sites for providing the images:
