These Storage Trees / Sanitation Stations are one of our favorite items - and a great seller because teachers are always asking us to include lots of storage places in our Natural Playground designs.
These little "trees" are just perfect for tissues, chalk, crayons, books, frisbees, sunscreen, bug repellant, magnifying glasses, garden gloves, small tools, notepads, and lots of other, small items. Depending on what's being stored, you can leave or remove the shelf.
Given the current concern about the spread of viruses on playgrounds, we have options for making this Storage Tree into a sanitation station, with a waterless hand wash dispenser and a hand sanitizer dispenser.
Storage Trees have a fully hinged, stay-shut door with a cute handle made from a tree branch, and are designed to stand up to the elements and provide water-proof storage for many different items.
Because the post can be cut to length, these Storage Trees can be placed at any height, so they can be accessed by children or only by teachers.
The neat thing about these, is that they're so reasonably priced that you can strategically place several around the Natural Playground. For instance, we put short ones accessible to kids right by nature trail entrances for guides and samples of things kids might find along the trail. Or we put them near quiet places, so kids can have ready access to books, pictures, tissues, or other resources, and so on.
Storage Trees come with simple assembly instructions and include the minimal hardware needed to install the Storage Tree with simple tools. Standard size for the Storage Tree box is 12"x12"x18" high, but we're happy to make any size you want. Just ask!
