This was a special commission for an international, UK based, exhibition design company which needed an authentic looking artificial apple tree which could have an incorporated ability to “grow” during a three day exhibition period.

False Tree trunks - close-up details, so realistic and providing the authentic touch in the world of artificial tree building
Artificial Fig Trees, are often the customer's first choice, perhaps because it's the most commonly used live and artificial tree one sees in public spaces. In these locations the choice of containers and securing the trees is an important consideration. Remember, interior artificial trees and containers fitted inside need to conform to fire regulations - usually class1
Large artificial trees set into containers need additional weight thus the complete product needs to be thought through and prepared prior to delivery on site.
Artificial Cherry Trees - White Artificial Cherry Blossom. The picture above shows 2.5m artificial cherry tree, built onto a natural wooden trunk and branches, made as a special order with an extra wide canopy plus an increased number of faux cherry blossom flowers.

Large artificial palms.
The artificial palm tree trunks used to make our popular artificial date palms and artificial washingtonia palms are all natural fibres. plantART offer inherently fire retardant (IFR) preserved palm leaves and artificial palm leaves. Spectacular large artificial palms are made up to 10m high and above; with either straight or curved trunks as shown in the pictures shown here.
Big artificial palms - the trunks have steel cores which allow the trunks to slide onto steel base plates which in turn can be secured to the ground without using containers

At the time of writting this text, 24th May 2011, the two different varieties of Outdoor Artificial Palms shown in the pictures above and below are being sujected to winds of up to 90mph (150kmph).
The picture below also shows how the artificial palm leaves and fonds can withstand the weight of last winter's heavy snow falls. Once the snow had melted the resilient artificial outdoor palms leaves sprang back into shape.

Although a household favourite artificial fig tree; the artificial olive tree is becoming a very popular favourite with customers largely attributed to its new and improved authentic looking artificial olive leaves – shown above in detail. Artificial olive tree trunks are particularly life-like blending the strong GRP (glass fibre) large girth trunk and the natural wood branches plus the abundance of delightful elegant and luxurious green foliage
The artificial olive tree trunk shown in the above picture is also moulded to form a one meter square base. Thus this fake olive tree can stand freely; and, have the facilaty to be secured to the floor
Artificial Boxwood Hedges, Artificial Topiary Trees and Artificial Boxwood Trees

False boxwood hedges are now available using inherently fire retardant (IFR) foliage material thereby making them suitable for safe interior use. The fake boxwood hedges in sections shown above, surrounding the artificial olive tree, are a new “ready to go” product available later this autumn. Section sizes: 100cm long, 80cm high and 20cm wide
