Tree Guardian / equipament

Tree Guardian
Tree Guardian

Typhoons are common in Taiwan, and damages come after their visit. When strong winds blow not only sidewalk trees but also passengers are under threat of broken tree limbs. Thus, the tree guardian is made to protect street trees by steering and centering winds as vertical air defection. As a result, the wind-force would be reduced. Tree guardian is not only a place for rest but also protect trees from the harm of typhoons.
