Trees are such wonderful things. They clear the air, grow high and tall, bring beauty to the earth and provide us with shade, fruit, and comfort. When building new structures, most architecture companies just tear the trees down. But others, those with a little more creativity and perspective, keep the trees intact and find a way to build around them. Check out these incredible places that let trees keep on growing.
