WholeTrees partnered with the Birmingham Zoo to create round timber play equipment for the Zoo's natural playground. Each structure was built from black locust sourced from Wisconsin public lands. The play features are placed with careful consideration for existing landscape features, plantings, and varying elevations across the site to create place-based relationships. Designed for a wide range of ages, the playscape includes lofty Climbing Poles, a Tree Maze, a Log Pile, and a one-of-a-kind Eagle's Nest.
