Patrick Dougherty is an american land artist. Combining his carpentry skills with his love of nature, Patrick Dougherty began to learn more about primitive techniques of building and to experiment with tree saplings as construction material. His work quickly evolved from single pieces on conventional pedestals to monumental scale environmental works, which required saplings by the truckloads. Over the last thirty years, he has built over 275 of these site-specific, temporary works, and become internationally acclaimed. His sculpture has been seen worldwide---from Scotland to Japan to Brussels, and all over the United States.

Internationally renowned land artist Patrick Dougherty has been invited to create monumental and inspiring land art pieces in the Botanical Garden Arboretum. A memorable natural experience!
