As Seen on Treehouse Masters: Temple Residence Greenwall

August 22, 2014 at 3:28 pm

Welcome to my first “As Seen on…” series!


Today we are showcasing the Temple Residence as seen on the recent 2014 “Temple of Adventure” Treehouse Masters episode on Animal Planet and The Discovery Channel.


“Treehouse Masters has viewers climbing to a majestic world up in the treetops with visionary and tree whisperer Pete Nelson.” ~ Treehouse Masters

Temple of Adventure originally premiered on Friday, January 10, 2014:

“Pete builds an incredible, adventure-themed treehouse for a young, exploration-loving family in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains. The family calls Pete and his crew to create a massive, two-story jungle masterpiece packed with secret doors and hidden passageways within a cluster of cherry trees! Pete delivers not just one but two bouncy suspension bridges, a daring rock-climbing wall and a living wall containing more than 700 live plants for this colossal treehouse, which overlooks a deep gorge. With a secret sarcophagus entrance, a second-story sleeping loft and loads of adventurous novelties, this treehouse is sure to bring the family hours of fun, especially when Pete reveals his tailored, sentimental surprise: a tribute to the family’s beloved grandmother.” ~ Treehouse Masters


Hosted by Pete Nelson, this beautiful, leafy living wall was installed on the west side of a cool treehouse by Plant Connection (PCI) using their G-O2 Living Walls system – this is also our Project of the Week for 8.18.14. Melissa Daniels, Anthony Caggiano, and Greg Caggiano of PCI were filmed with Pete Nelson of Treehouse Masters as they installed the unique greenwall.

“It is a lot of work and very time consuming to create a television show. While the entire episode is only an hour, the treehouse takes 4 weeks to build! There are so many details that go into producing one hour of entertainment. Plant Connection is very grateful for the opportunity to be included on Treehouse Masters, working alongside the very talented Pete Nelson and his entire team. We want to thank all those who made this possible. We hope the family enjoys the living wall and the treehouse for years to come. And, we hope when people watch the show, it inspires them to think outside – and on the wall!” ~ Plant Connection


It doesn’t seem as if you can see the entire one-hour show at Animal Planet, but you can see short video clips of it – the 3:52 Temple Treehouse – Behind the Build – click above, and the living wall reveal at the 2:29 A Treehouse Full of Adventure is Revealed – click below:

If you know of an upcoming segment addressing greenroofs or walls – or even if it’s after the fact – please let us know about it.  If it’s about your own company, even better – there’s nothing wrong with a little self-promotion!  But it has to be on a televised program (public TV, cable, WebTV show, etc.), independent film, or movie – not a video on YouTube (or similar) and certainly not a promo or company-sponsored piece.  By the way, you do not have to be an advertiser on (although we certainly appreciate the support!).

See anything recently?  Send us an email to: with the name of the show/film from any where around the world and the date it either aired or will air and any show/film links.  If it’s not in English, no problem!  Just seeing on screen will give us the gist of it.

Happy watching!

New: As Seen On…TV, Film, Video, Digital Arts…Greenroofs & Walls!

August 19, 2014 at 5:44 pm

Have you noticed lately how examples of living architecture – specifically greenroofs and greenwalls – seem to be sprouting up (sorry, couldn’t help it) in today’s screen media more often?

I’m not talking about radio, print, blogs, or other news media – that’s been going on for years ( has been around since 1999) – that’s why we have a whole section devoted to “NewsLinks.”


And videos abound on the subject online on YouTube and others, hence our own GreenroofsTV channel on YouTube where we have been posting videos since 2007…


But I’m referring more about how they’re popping up in TV, cable, and online shows, and more recently, films.


The PBS Crew: L-R: Associate Producer Deborah, Host Michael Weishan, Me, Producer Laurie and Camera Man Joel in April, 2006 at Saul Nurseries’ “The Swamp” location.


L-R: Me, Michael and Karen of Saul Nurseries.

Sometimes they’re the focus of a segment of an episode (like when I was on The Victory Garden on PBS back in 2006 and Ed Snodgrass was on Hallmark Channel’s “The Martha Stewart Show” in 2012) or at other times they’re just randomly seen in the background, like on a few recent House Hunters International (love that show!) or used to make a specific point – examples coming soon.

L-R: Chip, The Martha Stewart Show Set Designer; Ed Snodgrass; and Andrea Mason, the Garden Segment Producer.

Well, we’re going to start pointing them out to you, and hope you do the same by sending us an email to: with the name of the show/film for a quick post – to get people aware of the airings!  If you have the date it aired (and link) or will air, even better.  By the way, send them from around the world, not just from North America!

Our first one will showcase the Temple Residence on Treehouse Masters, hosted by Pete Nelson, using the System from Plant Connection – also our Project of the Week.


Happy watching!
