But some architects walk out their way to ensure that the natural splendor of trees stay unscathed and actually make an effort to preserve nature and also give trees another chance.

Here are 20 examples of really cool homes that incorporate trees to their structure. These showcase tree-human cohabitation.

Chopping of the forests have already been found detrimental, which is also the main reason for global warming. Also, it impacts the water level in the soil. Its high time that we follow the required methodologies as applied by these trend setting architects in order to avoid the natural disasters and develop a harmonious tree-human being cohabitation as showcased. Spread the word to save this world from global warming and natural disasters.

Should we deplete the forests to build our homes, or should we try to build our buildings into the surrounding environment? How can we switch our living practices to become more mindful of nature?
