The Tree of Seasons was designed to reflect the growth and organic growth of the Richland's Famers market. The location is the focal point of the market the tree is 22 feet tall with 3 kinetic branches holding over 470 stainless steel glass inlayed leaves.


The goals was to create a landmark Iconic sculpture for The Parkway and the Richland's Famers market. We even included the stainless steel ring to both frame the work and create a nice new sign for the area.


CJRDesign was basically given a simple idea that they would like a tree, the design, fabrication and installation was all done by CJRDesign.
