"Giving Trees" present a wonderful way for parishioners to celebrate life cycle events. Births, communions, confirmations, birthdays, weddings and anniversaries may all be marked by donating leaves on the church donor tree.
A three dimensional, hand-carved, double tree base roots out over a slight knoll in the corner of the room as the branches spread to the adjacent walls on either side. The leaves of satin brass, aluminum and copper hang from the branches as well as from the walls. Dedication plaques are mounted to each of the bases.

150 - 2" x 4" Vintage Gold acrylic leaves are mounted to 3/8" flush Plexiglas leaves. The base and branch are 1/2" thick Coca Brown Corian. Individual 2 1/2" Vintage Gold acrylic title letters are laminated to 1/4" black Sintra. All materials are rated for outdoor use.
The base, fabricated from multiple layers of angled mahogany, anchors this 250 - 2" x 4" leaf design. Mahogany branches are dispersed through the Plexiglas mounted brass leaves which curvre their way around and above the door frame to attach with the central 470 tree.
