Have you ever wanted to live amongst the birds? This tree house celebrates our co-existence with nature. It was named Mother Tree as a loving tribute to Jean, the Cornett family matriarch.

Mother Tree is located in Spirit of the Suwannee Park and has captured the hearts of children of all ages. It was designed on the fly by Michael Garnier without any technical drawings.

The roof of the structure is 45 feet above ground level with a winding metal staircase to the upper level.

Most of the Southern Yellow Pine used for the house was harvested right there within the park.

The bolts that support the tree house will also ensure the tree lives to a ripe old age of 800 to 900 years.

Builders were suspended by ropes while working and lifts were used to get the wood and granite up into the tree.

This amazing tree house can be found at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. Why not book a tour today?

    The architecture is fantastic - but what does this building do to the living trees? Look at the pressure it installs on them! I understand the creative idea - but if you care for all living beings - think twice! We have to respect trees in a double sense - first because they are living beings and second: because WE depend on THEM - we humans cannot live without trees to produce our air - they in turn don't need us at all - so we are the parasit.......

    The way it is constructed is amazing! It is such a shame that you have to keep unwanted people out with this metal gate.

    It sounds like, in the beginning, you state that using the garnier limb (GL) will increase the trees natural life expectancy 3 fold... That's just not possible. If the average lifespan of the tree is 300 years, it will not live for 900 years. The point at which the GL penetrates the tree will become stronger (maybe by 3 x) as the tree heals around it.

    It's definitely a great tree house but how much did it cost to build and how much more would it cost to make it a viable home? I suspect to make it a livable year round residence it likely would cost more than than a house with 2 or 3 times the living space. That's the problem with these alternative living spaces whether it's a tree house or a tiny home, they're cute sure, but they tend to cost more per footage than a normal home. The cheap ones are ones people build themselves and most of us aren't pioneers and couldn't build one structurally sound if our life depended on it.
