Monolith Coronet

Monolith Coronet

Bawden tree surgeon Simon Laird was tasked with creating the monolith, which requires the skills of a highly trained climber. Once the tree’s limbs were ‘section felled’ and lowered to the ground, Simon set about creating a ‘coronet’ at the branch ends to resemble the fracture that might occur when a limb is lost naturally as a result of wind or storm damage. This approach provides a more natural look to the monolith and helps the establishment of lichen and fungi.
