The photos below have been kindly send to me by George Blakely, professor of art at the Florida State University. Mr Blakely told me he started making 'junk mail trees' in 1988, when he moved to a property with
a rather large garden in Tallahassee, Florida:
I wanted to reforest the plot and have done so with natural trees and 'artistic' ones. The junk trees are an ongoing project and go along with my other art work that also intersects with my environment lifestyle. I recycle almost everything - and I do mean everything - by turning waste into art.
A couple more junk mail trees can be found on the website.
