These days, we can associate treehouses with eco-friendly qualities because they mean instead of the clearing of landscapes, the treehouse becomes a part of the natural landscape. This is a distinct reversal of the trend of recent centuries of the great effort to ‘tame’ mother nature and ‘subdue’ her that the Likes of Francis Bacon have advocated. Instead of the supposed victory over nature, we can see the treehouse as an attempt to live with nature and part of it and recognize this as our roots.
