Branches of Light

On the way home tonight I was taken back by the ugliness of your standard tall steel lights on Motorways and roads. Lamptree’s in essence will be a way of carving nature back onto public highways and roads helping both with pollution and looks. Lamp posts would be replaced by trees that have lighting systems within them, branching out over the roads in the same way lighting systems work today.
