A simple tree reaches up towards the sky between taller buildings, holding 250 birds, designed by Slough people. Positioned centrally on the High Street, the 'Bird Tree' is a popular meeting place. The design of each bird is unique, and each sits covering the branches like leaves on a tree. This project brought together the community of Slough, the council and local businesses.
