when I first saw it I thought it was painted as well, but it is actually real. that's why it's so insane. such un-natural colors that are appearing in....nature.

free people included some info about it in their post, but it's a birch tree that only grows in the northern hemisphere. It starts o peel in one color and as it ages the colors begin to change.

it's utterly magnificent. and beautiful to say the least.
