A Riverhead company is going to be featured in the premiere episode of "Treehouse Masters" airing on Animal Planet on Friday night.
Plant Connection, Inc., which has offices on Sound Avenue, will be seen installing a G-O2 Living Wall system on the side of a large, two-story treehouse built for a family in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains.
The treehouse crew builds two bouncy suspension bridges, a rock-climbing wall and a living wall containing more than 700 live plants — which is where the Riverhead company comes in.
Plant Connection manufactures, designs, and grows G-O2 Living Walls, which are specially engineered for plant performance and sustainability. As a modular system, it mounts to different surfaces, and has a built-in irrigation and monitoring system.
"When Treehouse Masters decided that a living wall would be a great addition for the adventure-themed treehouse located in the Poconos, they researched living wall companies," said Sabrina Altair Buttitta, a Green Wall & Roof Design Specialist who works for Plant Connection. "Upon their findings and our extensive portfolio of living wall projects, they felt our system would be the best for the treehouse. It also didn't hurt that we are located in nearby New York."
