Buy a “Dream Tree” On

Auctions have started on for the seven trees being sold in favour of the International Polar Foundation (IPF).

A total of 100 trees composed the Land Art exhibition "Let's make the world a brighter place", which was held along the prestigious Avenue F. Roosevelt in Brussels. Only seven trees were signed by Alain Hubert, co-founder of the IPF and polar explorer. Each of the seven is painted in a different color (white, blue, green, yellow, red, orange and pink fuchsia) and carries in its leaves pieces of glass bearing the dreams for a better world sent in by various people all over Europe.

To purchase one of these "dream trees", visit eBay .be and type "arbre métallique" in the search engine. Descriptions, photographs and information on the auction are available for you here. If a particular colour pleases you, make sure you place a bid: it will all go to the benefit of the environment and, who knows, it may even plant "dream seeds" once it is in your garden!
