AbstractAn elongated cylinder-like shaped ornamental planter simulated a portion of a tree, naturally formed and found in nature. Extending from the main body of about eighteen inches is a protrusion forming a V-shaped balancing arm simulating a limb smaller in size from the main body. A hollowed body chamber cavity extends the whole length to contain earth and flora. Irregular shaped oval openings are situated along the top of the main body to simulate knot holes. The bottom surface of the main body is smooth and flat containing drain holes for water. The outer surface of the main body includes many irregularly shaped and positioned placed simulated tree-like characteristics. Irregular bark texture covers or surrounds the outer surface and tree-like characteristics. Varied applications of colors give each simulated log or portion of a tree, their own distinctive look.
