For the second year, Hello Wood, an art/architecture/design project, has built a special Christmas tree in the heart of Budapest near Deák tér. Constructed of 5,000 pieces of firewood, and illuminated by specially designed lighting from Philips Hungary, the impressive tree stands 11 meters tall and is 4.5 meters wide. It also features a chapel-like interior with log bench seating. On January 6,2015, the tree will be dismantled and the firewood distributed by a local charity group.
