Most larger apple picking ladders like our very impressive “Henchman Maxi Hi-Step” are used to cut the tallest of hedges and most normally to trim trees down. Because even the smallest of trees need a little trim down now and again. Maybe just to remove some dead branches that have blown off in all the wind we have been getting. Yep! Even trees need some love now and again. And if anyone has ever been to Disney land they will know that theme park trees are trimmed, brushed, cared for and some even have their leaves polished to make them look nice! (that sounds odd but it really does go on!) And today we are going to look at a very special tree indeed…
USA? Nope! Today we are flying over to visit a theme park that most people have probably never heard off and even less been to. It called Everland and it’s in South Korea!!!
Everland is a magical place no matter what age you are. It’s a theme/amusement park, That we suspect is modelled on Disneyland but in a South Korean style, and its wonderful. The good news for most of us is that the maps for the theme park are available in English as well as many other languages! ( we thought we would tell you about this because there isn’t many theme parks in the world that would see maps/guides in anything other that their own country’s language). But we are here today to look at the first thing you will seen when you walk through the main gates, and it’s called “The fairy tree”. This magical tree at nights/low daylight time is covered in ‘fairy lights’, but we will break any illusions you have right now. IT’S A FAKE TREE!!!
So why come all this way to show you a fake tree? Because the flowers that are planted inside the trees branches are very real indeed! And each and every season they are dug up and different one (depending on the seasons colours) are planted! Meaning what the tree looks like solely depends on the time of year you go. Now while this may not be ground breaking it does make it look stunning no matter what age you are or when you visit here. And strangely it’s what people remember most about this theme park, not the amazing wooden rollercoaster or rides:just the way that,on the way home, when it’s late at night the “fairy tree” is all lit up and ready to see them home.
And how do you think they change all them flowers each season taking over 10 hours, by over 40 people, over one night? Yep! They use garden ladders, simple tripod garden ladders. For a real good laugh, check out the last picture, and look at the way they stamp the Parks owners name on the stock photos in the top right hand side, a Ms Diana Teo. The font used does seem to remind us of something…hhhmmmm.
