Made from discarded trees Hatfield found around London, the sledge was made using a traditional woodworking technique know as bodging, where wood is worked 'green', without drying or seasoning first.

Here's a little text from Hatfield:
Christmas Tree sledge
This Sledge is made from Christmas trees found in on the streets of London. With roughly 1.7 million trees bought for this recent Christmas period, these two-week trees are just discarded every year. With snow in London becoming a more frequent occurrence, it seemed an appropriate item to use for the season.
Using the primitive skills of a bodger, it opens up an inventive feeling of seeing the resources that are around us. People are not as resourceful as they once where. This sledge can give an excitement to a process that can give confidence that appeals to our creative side.
