Some Smiling Customers...
Send me a photo
of your tree and I'll post it here...
"Wanted to share a couple
pics of it with you since it is your first in Canada.
Haven’t got enough bottles for it (Guess I need to drink more
wine!), but our plan is
to collect them as we visit different places. South Western Ontario
is very good wine country."
"We used a base from a broken
patio heater and buried it in the gravel. Holes are too hard to
"You may recall I contacted
you a couple of months ago about potentially shipping a bottle tree
to the UK and it would of cost the price of a small car????? I
thought you might like to see my finished article - I found a local
welder who made this for me. As it is based on one of yours I
thought you may like to see it and technically it is the first
bottle tree in the UK attributed to Jerry Swanson!!.
"My wife and I love the tree...But for now, I wanted to let you know that when it comes to performing its intended function of trapping evil spirits in the bottles, you can now "guarantee their effectiveness" to your customers, and state confidently that your trees will unquestionably perform as advertised.
In the attached, un-retouched photo (Bottle Tree A), I offer you what may be the first ever photographic evidence of how well your Bottle Trees truly perform their intended task. This photo is straight from my Droid X phone camera and was taken with an application called High Dynamic Range Camera. This app takes 4 separate exposures, using exposure bracketing and tone mapping, then combines them for a perfectly balanced exposure. When I looked at this completed photo, I immediately noticed that there was what appears to be, a spirit of ill-intent caught in one of the upper bottles and actually showing itself - And this is only one day after planting! I give you my word - this picture has not, in any way, been altered or undergone any photo-manipulation what so ever. What you see is what the camera actually caught."
I have also attached a second picture, taken with the same app, and just after the first one (Bottle Tree B), but it looks like the trapped spirit shied away in this one. This photo was cleaned up a bit in Photo Shop, so as to minimize some distracting elements and emphasize the Bottle Tree better. "
