British designer Heatherwick is set to create a 21-metre-high sculpture named Tree of Trees at Buckingham Palace.

Erected as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend celebrations, the sculpture will contain 350 types of trees found in Britain.

Commenters aren't sold on the idea. One called it, "another colossal waste of resources".
