Growth Facts

The Story

These patio chairs aren’t churned out in a factory in China. Our Bloodgood London Planetree Living Tree Chairs are crafted by our skilled growers in the great outdoors right here in the USA. Each tree is gently guided in its growth from a very young age to take its ultimate form. The durable, long-lived London Planetree is especially well suited to this fascinating collaboration between Man and Nature. It’s a tough, vigorous hybrid tree derived from the American Sycamore and the Oriental Planetree and adapts to many growing conditions. The London Plane was first grown in—you guessed it—London, over 350 years ago.

The Details

The London Planetree is especially popular in European cities. As you munch on your croissant on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, this is the tree you’ll see lining the famous avenue. Planetrees are often pollarded in Europe, which is a severe sort of pruning—but we doubt you’ll see a London Planetree Living Chair Tree overseas. That is a Bower & Branch™ exclusive!

How to Grow

Your Bloodgood London Planetree Living Tree Chair will prefer a site that receives all-day sun. It isn’t fussy about the type of soil it grows in. This special tree will be professionally planted by a trained Living Tree Chair technician from your local Bower & Branch member Garden Center. Purchase of the tree will also include six visits from a technician to ensure that your tree is properly installed and established in your landscape, so that you may enjoy it for years to come. Upon planting, the Bloodgood London Planetree Living Tree Chair will be able to hold at least 250 pounds, and after one year in your landscape, there are no weight restrictions. We recommend purchasing a Bower & Branch™ Tree Chair Saddle to make your Living Tree Chair experience fully satisfying.
