RE: Topping out steel structures with a tree

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It is done as a symbol of "topping off" a structure.  Some traditions even have a "tree-topping" party as a way of celebrating the end of a long or complicated project.
 
That was what one of the "steel-monkeys" (self implied name) told me.
 
Hope this helps,
