I didn’t know either until I found one on a web site. They are a little unique and can make your backyard tree the center of attention and conversation. If you like to sit in the shade under your favorite tree; then here is one of the neatest ways to do it. Put one, two, three, or better yet four of these Oxford Tree Benches under and around your favorite shade giver; and you have a backyard gathering place that’s made for the shade! Each bench is like a lounge with a side table; and, if you place them like the image above, you have a perfect spot for afternoon tea or wine! These make using the old fold up chair obsolete!!
