Having grown up with fond memories of playing in a treehouse, Atlanta-based environmentalist Peter Bahouth partnered with local builder Nick Hobbs to design and construct his own adult version. Bahouth selected a trio of trees to build the structures in, resulting in three enchanting spaces linked together by a suspension bridge.

Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581
This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.
Godzilla is originally a prehistoric monster awakened and empowered by nuclear radiation, but the Godzilla you see here is the product of completely natural waste: pine needles. He was made by Li Yi-Kai, a landscape architecture graduate student at Taiman’s Nanhua University who creates awesome kaiju sculptures using fallen pine branches that he finds on campus (along with some glue and wire).
"Li says that four years ago when he moved to Chia Yi county to begin studying at the university, he noticed that there were a lot of fallen pine branches on the ground on campus. Taking inspiration from nature, Li made his first pine tree art sculpture and has been busy adding to his collection of monsters ever since."
Head over to Kotaku for additional photos and video of Li and his fantastic pine needle monsters.
