World's First Tree Museum to Be Built in Switzerland


The idea to create the world's first museum dedicated to trees has recently come to Chad Oppenheim and Swiss landscape architect Enzo Enea.

The first tree museum in the world will be located in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland, where the wonderful trees will play two roles: serve as the main features of the museum and as the headquarters of Enea company.

It would be interesting to note that the museum will include over 2,000 trees that will beautify the lands of a 14th century monastery. The Tree Museum will open on June 14. It will have trees rising at a height of 40 feet, with some of them being as old as 130 years.

The 22 species of trees will grow on a territory of 2.5 acres. The list of species includes English yew and Scotch pine. More information is available here.
