"Weird Eco Habits" Contest Finalist: Tree-Friendly Fence

When Marc needed to build a fence in his backyard through where a tree already existed, he didn't cut the tree down, he built around it. Nominated by Marc's workmate, Christian Gloddy, Marc's "weird" eco habit is building tiny "portholes" in his fence in order to save a tree from being cut down. There is one potential downfall to this plan, but Marc (and Christian) seem to be ready, "Yeah, he’ll probably have to revise the fence as the tree grows over time, but the results are pretty cool looking." See more pics at Christian's site, Obvious Diversions.

All this week, TreeHugger is highlighting finalists for our "Weird Eco Habits" contest sponsored by Greenloop. Make sure to vote for your favorite "weird" habit starting this Friday.
