When choosing large artificial trees, one size (tree) does not fit all (environments). That’s why they are proud to offer small, mid-size, and large artificial outdoor trees and indoor flowering plants. The industry has come a long way since the inception of the artificial Christmas tree over a century and a half ago. Today, hundreds of species of small and large plastic trees and plants are available for purchase; from colorful Wisteria and Cherry Blossoms Trees to the tropical Date Palms and majestic Oak Trees, all of which are available in different shapes, sizes, colors or foliage densities.
Artificial Tree V/S Real Tree
We all love live trees. No one can replace or debate the beauty and environmental benefits of live trees. However, living trees require suitable environments, costly maintenance, and future replacement costs when placed in an indoor environment. Our botanical beauties may look like the real thing, but they’re practically maintenance-free. They require no traditional plant upkeep of any kind, other than an occasional cleaning. Our large fake trees are specifically designed to bring you years of lasting splendor while freeing you from the cost and inconvenience of:
● Watering, fertilizing, and clipping
● Maintaining and controlling interior sunlight and temperatures
● Treating for pests, root rot, and other botanical diseases
When it comes to artificial indoor trees, nobody does it better than this company. Our renowned Preserved Palms are astoundingly realistic because they craft them from real palm tree parts. By employing a proprietary process that ingeniously replaces water with organic preservatives, they bring new life to the palm fronds and bark of every tree we build. Their vast catalog of fabricated indoor trees runs the full spectrum from realism to fantasy, including everything from expansive Sugar Maples to magnificent Magnolias, to rustic Mediterranean Olive Trees. They’ve created Oak and Banyan Trees that span 30 feet tall, and Bamboo and Palm Trees that reach 70 feet tall. The only limit for artificial trees? Your imagination.
What are IFR Trees?
The faux trees and plants renaissance in America began in the 1920s when speakeasies and nightclubs began to utilize artificial materials within their elaborate design themes. They frequently utilized these to duplicate equatorial products like palms and flowers. From Hollywood to New York City, movie stars and mobsters alike could be found dancing to large orchestras under the arching fronds of artificial palm trees. In 1942, the industry came to an abrupt halt when the ‘synthetic palm tree decorations’ at the Cocoanut Grove nightclub in Boston, Massachusetts caught fire, killing 492 people. During the past 70 years, researchers and historians have identified dozens of safety violations that contributed to that fire.
Industry Changes for Artificial Trees
It was a turning point in the artificial decoration industry, and manufacturers were asked to begin using non-flammable materials. By the mid-1970s, new fire safety regulations were in place. They prevent commercial properties from placing specific non-IFR decorative elements indoors. In 1989, The Mirage Resort and Casino opened in Las Vegas, Nevada. The excellent features of this brand are new, proprietary, IFR, Preserved Palm Trees and a new chapter in the indoor artificial tree industry began. The company set a new criterion for elegance and safety, both of which remain to this day.
How Are IFR Trees Made?
Inherently Fire Retardant products utilize materials that have been engineered at the molecular level to embed flame-resistant properties. IFR is a vast improvement over products that are typically treated with fire-retardant chemicals. Topical treatments will wash off and lose effectiveness over time. Buyer beware: non-IFR, indoor artificial trees and plant products are available on the market today. Silk trees and plants are popular, but they have a much higher risk of flammability. Also, there are less than scrupulous companies, which purposely mislabel their products as IFR.
This company highly recommends that all designers, architects, managers, and owners research their vendors and confirm the materials are IFR. One easy way to accomplish this is by shopping from here.
Small & Large Artificial Outdoor Trees
This company has a collection of eye-catching of artificial and preserved outdoor trees sets us apart because they consistently exceed the industry standard for quality. With the help of our UV-inhibiting UltraLeaf-X foliage, fabricated fake outdoor trees like our mystic Banyan, Phoenix Dactylifera Palm Tree and Mediterranean Olive stand up to just about any climate. They effortlessly retain their shapely beauty and natural colors in the face of:
● Extreme temperatures,
● Sunlight and humidity, and
● The rigors of rain, wind, ice, and snow
Artificial Trees for Every Environment
The company has 70-foot tall palm trees and 30-foot broad oaks, and banyans are undoubtedly impressive, but at TreeScapes, our artisans and engineers continuously strive to infuse new excitement into our artificial trees. We children tree houses, unique hand-carved Tikis, and even our version of an indoor cat tree – a whimsical combination of climbing tower and cat home in one. But that’s just the beginning of what they can do with the most extensive array of custom-made artificial trees on the market.Their glorious fake indoor trees grace the interiors of casinos, airports, hotels, and shopping centers around the globe. They’re equally at home, though, in your local school, library, or museum.
Meanwhile, their fake outdoor trees are ideal for giving rooftops, patios, and cafes that touch of life-like greenery. They also introduce an element of fantasy, which can increase the excitement of theme parks, artistic spaces, and cruise ships.
|Thanks for doing this. I love Vegas and spend a lot of time there. So this is very interesting for me. Anyway, did anyone ever trash a room? If so how did they? Also is there any advice you would give if one of us ever got to the villas? Things that we should ask for?||We had the one guest with the crazy party I mentioned in another comment trash the place pretty good. There was a weird burlesque magic show he went to and he invited all the cast to this room for a crazy party. Around 6am in the morning I went into the room to pick up the dishes and there was crap everywhere and the damages was around 15k. I remember there were playing cards everywhere, the toilets were overflowing, we found a crack pipe and love stains everywhere.|
|The villas are for what they consider the big time high rollers, you need a really good casino host and a big pocket. Toby Maguire wanted to stay in our villas and the going rate was $20,000 a night. The largest bedroom was 16 thousand square feet, six bedrooms and two stories with an elevator. If you do get a good host ask for what ever you want, you gamble up to $5,000 a hand and you get what ever you need.|
|What was your favorite memory with him?||I have a lot of great memories but the one that made me laugh was there was one night where I got a call at about 3 am in the morning and he wanted breakfast for 14 people. I was the only butler on duty during that graveyard shift. He asked for 14 omelets and 14 orders of pancakes. I called everyone in the casino and had all the cooks running to make this order while I made the table. I had to serve the whole breakfast at now 4am in the morning by myself. I came up with the two carts full of food trying to plate it as fast as I can when Prince stood up from his chair and walked over to my cart. He grabbed a plate of pancakes and started helping me serve. I couldn't help but to laugh from the Charlie Murphy story on the Dave Chappelle show. This was my favorite moment...ever.|
|But did he offer them grapes?||Chaka Khan was there and she wanted avocado with her omelet...I had to run my ass off down to the kitchen and slice one up.|
|Craziest things you've seen during your time as a butler? What're you doing now?||Long story short but if there was a guest staying with us who was famous for making a sex tape with a certain celebrity. He went to a magic show where a former hot babe was hosting the show. After the show he invited her and all the cast to his suite. This show was kind of like a freak show so there were midgets in make up, tattooed faced shirtless guys with crazy piercings and stuff like that. They had a massive party and I saw people having sex, doing drugs and just pure fucking insanity. In the aftermath the room was destroyed and the two would be celebrities went and got married, but they were divorced a few days later. Room damages was around 15k.|
|Any cool souvenirs? Besides the pick? Also, any weird naked moments?||I took home bottles of expensive wines and cognacs. Elton John signed an old record my dad had.|
|Weird naked moments...yes. Weirdest was with Sir Elton. His massage therapist wanted an outlet extension so I ran to go get one. As I entered the room lobby Sir Elton walked out of treatment room naked; he didn't notice me but I saw his bare naked ass. Hope he never finds out about this...He isn't on Reddit, is he?|
|Call girls would flash us all the time. There was a photo on my old flip phone of me licking whip cream off a girls boob and the guest took the photo.|
|Please tell me you had much more action than licking whip creams?!||It's Classified] ([Link to media.giphy.com)|
|How does one start out in the butler business ?||I got lucky but also I have a natural gift in customer service. I was hired as a butler apprentice, which is where most would begin. Some people would be an apprentice for 12 or more months before even getting a full time butler position. There was an opening for a full time position 3 months after my start date, I interviewed for it and they gave it to me. I was one the fastest and the youngest to get it that quick. The pay as an apprentice was around $11 an hour with half percentage tips and my final hourly before I left was close to $18 an hour with full cut of the tip pool.|
|What's the craziest story you have of Prince?||The breakfast story was the craziest for me but I remember after he won his Golden Globe for Happy Feet it was in his room but in an odd place. I was in the room with my manager and I looked at it and said wow, I am actually looking at a Golden Globe, my manager laughed and asked me if I could guess why it was in an odd place on an oak table in the room. I didn't know so he lifted it up and there was a burn mark from a candle which Prince caused one night. He was using the Golden Globe to cover up room damage, which is hilarious.|
|Would he be charged to replace the table at the end of his stay or was it within the range of wear and tear? Since he was there for an extended stay did you replace the table during his stay since it looked bad?||I am not sure what happened to the table, we probably charged him I would imagine.|
|What's the most unforgettable gossip you've heard from your guests?||I overheard about certain celebrities being either gay or bi-sexual from an other celebrity. No names that I am willing to share, sorry. Also I heard a story on a celebrity's first encounter with cocaine, it was actually mickeyed into his food when he went to a dinner party at a Mr. Wilson's house...may or may have not been on a beach ;)|
|Heard a rap star talk smack about other performers after the MTV music awards at the Palms Casino. He had me cracking up as I was trying to serve him late night dinner.|
|Wow! Were those names surprised you? I mean, doesn't they have a bisexual tendency image?||Some were and some were not. I think celebrities go to crazy parties, get high and certain urges come out, doesn't mean they are gay, it was just the drugs filling out a possible fantasy.|
|Did you ever hear him playing guitar in his personal time?||Just the piano. One early evening he ordered pizza which he wanted to eat during a movie. I got him pizza from the casino and as I was clearing off the coffee table one of his guitar picks was there. I picked it up and asked him where I should place it, he responded in his deep voice "You can keep it". So I did and I gave it to my dad as a gift, the pick had his logo on it and it was white and purple.|
|Are you still here? What's the most Jeeves moment you've had as a butler?||I've never read any of those stories but Las Vegas butlers are a lot different than professional butlers, we get to do all the fun stuff. I would watch the clients get drunk all night and wake up at 2pm in the afternoon as they stumbled back to the casino floor. As long as we did what they asked they didn't care how we acted. Most of us Las Vegas butlers were no gentlemen.|
|Would it be better to be a casino butler or to be a personal butler?||Personal butler. I never liked Vegas, no culture to it just all the bad stuff. People acted differently in Vegas so I would prefer to be there when they were just themselves and not the playboy or hot shot. I never felt comfortable being in their room around their personal space, felt out of place. I think that is why I changed my job and moved away from LV.|
|Anything interesting stories with Toby Maguire?||Really nice guy. He was there to play poker at the WSOP, not the main tournament but the lower ones not televised. He had a backpack with him and no other luggage. I asked if I could take it from him to bring it to his room and he declined, I asked if it was because his spidey suit was in there and he gave a big smile and laugh. I liked him.|
|Do you know of any independent Butler service providers in the Vegas area? Some some stuff I'm considering it would be helpful to have one on schedule for a few days.||Some butlers build a great rapport with high rollers and they can be requested at other casinos. There was one of the butlers that worked at Caesar's Palace and Sir Elton really liked him so he would come work with us when Elton stayed. Nice guy, I can see why he was favored. I am sure if you had a service where you would be hired independently you could go where ever your employer goes.|
|For whom did you most enjoy buttling?||There was a guy who would come a lot and he would always invite me into his room or out to the casino. I would be his wing man and we would drink, talk to woman and he would order me food. He loved Marie Callender Pies so we would have to go get it for him which I ate with him while the other butlers were working.|
|Sounds like a great client! If that's the proper term... Maybe employer?||Client or guest is the term I would use. They were not paying us to wait on them. the casino was. I was employed by the Rio.|
|Hey, thanks very much for answering my questions! Please have yourself a wonderful day.||Thank you. You as well my friend.|
|My understanding is that the concierge/butlers serving the high end suites could get anything available in Vegas 24/7 for their VIP guest, including high-priced escorts, blow, speed, any food imaginable, etc. How true is this in your experience?||No really, I would never get asked for any of that. That is all the casino host or their direct dealer. Concierge would get escort services but they were mostly female concierge so they would hate having to do that. Food requests, yes, had a guy that wanted the prime rib at a Main Station Casino, I went with another butler in a limo to go get it really late at night, also In-and-Out burgers and Taco Bell.|
|What was the wildest thing Elton John requested?||His morning routine was odd. We would have all the London newspapers printed out for him and he would eat some dry crackebiscuits with his favorite jam (marmalade), Fuze juice, and a shot glass full of about 20 vitamins...every morning. I would make about 3-4 espressos for him as well in the morning.|
