Tree X Office

November 23rd, 2014

If the human capacity to own property bestows political agency, independence, and even personhood upon the owner, what if a tree is given this same capacity?


Tree X is a co-working space and open-plan office. The facility is owned and operated by the tree itself, acting as a landlord. The tenancy generates rent, the proceeds of which are to be used by and in the interests of the landlord-tree as the tree determines: for example, augmenting soil with biochar, companion plantings, and other actions at the tree’s discretion.
