Discover the New Developments in the Fascinating World of
Large Artificial Trees.
This publication is primarily a pictorial overview, summary and fascinating visual experience for you to discover what’s new with large artificial trees. The majority of the pictures tell their own storey; but there's more in depth and interesting information as you scroll through the article.
Here is a wonderful opportunity for plantART to share this pictorial experience showing new developments in the world of Large Artificial Trees, Large Artificial Palms, Artificial Boxwood and Artificial Topiary Trees.
The ever and fast changing world in the plantART arena provides unusual, intriguing and innovative designs in new large artificial trees, palms, plants and boxwood.
 An unusual construction process of an Artificial Apple Tree - 4m high, an extra wide canopy and with a special feature unique to plantART's artificial tree building engineering: the use of adjustable branches. 
 This was specially commissioned for an international, UK based, exhibition Design Company which needed an authentic looking artificial apple tree, with red artificial apples, and needed to have incorporated the ability to “grow” during a three day exhibition period.
The growing function was achieved by making special “lockable” hinges. Although uniform branch adjustment was done via wires linking into a central control point, the friction pads between the moving hinge faces applied additional support. The later also provided initial support when building the tree to set the branch angles in forming the canopy shape.
  A delightfully finished artificial tree, ready to be dismantled for shipment overseas 
 The artificial tree trunk is GRP (glass fibre) construction set on a 1.0m square base making this wonderful specimen, a well balanced stand alone artificial apple tree
The square base also allows securing the tree to the floor should it be located in a busy public area.
Magnificent 6.0m Large Artificial Fig Tree. 
These very imposing specimen artificial ficus trees come to the customer in kit form ready for easy assembly.
All plantART’s artificial leaves used in the construction of our artificial trees are inherently fire retardant (IFR) as standard – fire certificates are also available.
5.0m Artificial Trees London as its destination and new home. Large artificial ficus trees are the common replacement to the failed fresh which trees have become unkempt.
 With both of the above specimens the artificial tree trunks are of GRP (glass fibre) construction set onto 1.0m square bases. These bases allow for securing the trees to the floor, should they be located in busy public areas.
An innovative example showing how to create interesting and trendy screens. Artificial bamboo is always a favourite and here we show another delightful way of using this product. The artificial bamboo shown in the above picture is from our artificial Japanese bamboo range; however, plantART offer different varieties fake bamboo such as those from our oriental, Buddha, and natural bamboo range.
Using other varieties of faux bamboo will allow customers to decide on the height and density of the screens as well as the style of leaves they prefer.  
  Faux Topiary Spiral Trees
 The above picture is an in-situ shot kindly provided by Blue Sky Flowers - "These faux box spirals were installed at the newly refurbished Royal Horseguards Hotel. They are at the street entrance to the hotel restaurant and are designed to reflect the real box spirals plated outside and they don't need watering or clipping!"  Liz Inigo Jones of Blue Sky Flowers

Although the same picture as above; its intention is to demonstrate another use of artificial boxwood as an alternative medium to use as room dividers, screens or partitions. The use of curving the artificial boxwood hedges adds a pleasing and appealing character.
It goes without say; however, it is a good opportunity to remind plantART’s customers, plantART can make fake boxwood sections to any size i.e. length and height to suit their requirements.
And remember: false artificial boxwood hedge mating is available as UV stable – ideal for exterior use – and inherently fire retardant (IFR) - a must for interior use. More information of the styles of faux boxwood hedge mats which are available can be found by taking a look at our article titled: -

Artificial Maple in autumn colours, very distinctive, colourful and popular favourite with our customer.
The majority of trees built by plantART are mostly using the green varieties of artificial leaves; however, there is increasing interest with some of our adventurous clients which consider the idea of colourful foliage a pleasant alternative of fake trees in autumn shades.
Faux Ficus Trees - shown here were recently installed - 3.0m artificial trees Glasgow Airport 
False Tree trunks - close-up details, so realistic and providing the authentic touch in the world of artificial tree building. The artificial tree trunks are made from GRP (Glass Fibre) the main and secondary branches are natural wood. Close inspection of the pictures shows if is difficult to see the “joints” and the texture finish, colour and shape appear to be very life-like
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.
Pink Artificial Cherry Blossom Tree; an extremely popular purchase this year especially with the lighter shade of artificial pink cherry blossom flowers
 The two above examples show fake light pink and white/cream cherry blossom, but there are other darker shades of pink available
Progress in technology has led to improved and authentic reproductions of replica plants and replica flowering plants. plantART is able to offer a wonderful range of artificial flowering plant varieties from English garden, such as artificial heather, to artificial orchids and many other colourful artificial tropical plants. In the picture it shows how faux trees, plants and flowering plants can artistically used to create pleasing interior landscapes using outdoor varieties
Now for something different – imaginative uses of traditional old English oak trees, the reproduction of artificial oak trees used as table top displays and wonderfully decorated for an elaborate gala dinner
Artificial Oak Trees - artificial table top trees for special occasions. Artificial trees and artificial palms used for table decorations as central feature pieces are becoming very popular. Often the fake trees are made up without leaves, coloured for the customer to add additional decoration and lights.
  The showroom view displaying a fabulous some of the range of artificial boxwood hedges, artificial boxwood cones, spirals and pyramids, artificial grass lawns, large artificial palms, large artificial olive trees, colourful artificial flowering plants and so much more 
 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.
It is impossible to show all the varieties, in all the colours and in all the sizes. So, if you do not see at first what you need JUST ASK!
 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.
This is a fabulous way to fit avenues of large artificial palms, because it looks so realistic when they appear to be growing naturally out of the ground
A detailed picture showing the head of an artificial date palm using preserved palm leaves
The faux palm trunks can be made straight, leaning over (as one sees along the wind beaches on tropical islands) or with curves. Clusters of fake palms with varying heights and different shapes make magnificent focal points within spacious buildings
A detailed picture showing the head of an artificial washingtonia palm using preserved palm leaves
 Both artificial date palms and artificial washingtonia palms cam be built onto trunks described above and with a choice manufactured, artificial palm leaves or alternative preserved palm leaves – in either case each is available as inherently fire retardant (IFR)
 At the time of writing this text, 24th May 2011, the two different varieties of Outdoor Artificial Palms shown in the pictures here are being subjected to winds of up to 90mph (150kmph). No better way to demonstrate that plantART’s artificial exterior palms are fit for purpose
The picture below also shows how the artificial palm leaves and fronds 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, thereby making these faux palms truly suitable for outdoor use all year around
Artificial Exterior Palms withstanding a severe weather
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 here in “close-up” 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 facility to be secured to the floor
Artificial Boxwood Hedges, Artificial Topiary Trees and Artificial Boxwood Trees
Faux boxwood hedges are in big demand especially with the increased number of restaurants and cafés extending their outside dinning areas. 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
And Finally
Artificial Boxwood Camel - TO GO!
