In most places old trees just go into the forest to die — except in Vancouver. We hollow them out, park cars in them, and snap photos for postcards to send to friends in far away places! A bit of marketing genius some might say. The $100,000 just spent to ‘restore’ our hollow tree in Stanley Park gives food for thought. In this age of recycling, might the hollow tree restoration provide incentive to explore options for ‘restoring’ old inventory?
