Botanical Benefits

06.08.20

As many of us have been spending so much time indoors this year, it’s no wonder we’ve all been longing for a walk in the woods or simply a nice bucolic view to enjoy.

Being close to nature has long been a suggested path to happiness and now scientists believe that just looking at nature (or a picture of it) can do wonders for our mindset. So, what could be better than bringing those natural views inside, to be enjoyed all day long?

Short of growing a tree in your living room, there are simpler ways to get these botanical benefits. That’s where TreeLocate comes in - a bespoke tree specialist that creates custom trees and green walls to liven up your living areas and commercial spaces.

Now trading for over 25 years, they have offices in both the north of England and the Middle East (under the name Foliages), covering customers worldwide.

Each commission is wildly different – from a delicate hanging basket to a 20-metre high pine tree.

Their hand-built museum grade trees are 100% botanically accurate, with the most committed attention to detail. The hyper-realistic creations are produced using both fabricated and preserved tree trunks, ethically sourced from sustainable sites in Europe and North America. Each tree is assembled by their artisans in England and Dubai, to the exact specification of the client.

With safety always in mind, the trees are adorned in fire-retardant foliage called FireSilx.

“Certified to worldwide safety standards and guaranteed to last without need for re-proofing, this high-quality foliage has long been the choice of interior designers, architects and landscapers across the globe,” explains Mark Nesbitt, MD of TreeLocate in the UK.

The FireSilx foliage is also used in their custom green walls – a growing trend in every market.

“More and more of our projects are involving green walls, they’ve certainly taken off in the Middle East. From budget range, large volume exterior walls to high-finish, opulent walls that are installed in many large projects as well as health spas, restaurants, private villas and palaces all over the Gulf,” says John Doyle, MD of Foliages UAE.

And for those wanting exterior foliage in hotter climates, TreeLocate are able to create trees for long-lasting outdoor use too. Using UVSilx foliage, the trees are built to withstand higher temperatures and increased sun exposure thanks to ultraviolet inhibitor technology. So those calming green vistas can be enjoyed all year round, both inside and out, no matter where you are.
