I don’t recall how exactly I stumbled upon the site, but I was immediately hooked. I can’t imagine the permitting process, but I would truly love to have of these. First, however, I’ll need to find a tree, in particular, according to the FAQ, a “straight-trunked tree such as a Pine, Spruce, or Fir tree” – I think I can probably find one around here . . .
