This Beautiful Church Is Made Of Living Trees

New Zealander Brian Cox walked into his backyard and felt something was missing. Inspired by traveling abroad, he decided to build a church. But instead of conventional building materials, Cox chose to use trees -- living trees.

Cox built a metal frame for support before bringing in the foliage. Since he owns a gardening company called Treelocations, Cox was able to transplant already grown trees for the project.

Four years later, he has a three-acre backyard church and gardens. The gardens are open for public tours or for rent as an event space. Take a tour of Cox's creation in the photos below.
