Dean, This was obviously built for decorative purposes. It's also only a foot off the ground so safety is not really an issue.

These trees were salvaged from the property when the site was cleared for the house construction. I am not sure about the top rail, but the free form panel infills are made with rhododendron (also salvaged from the site clearing).

In response to Stacey: Raiks almost just like these were common in my neighborhood a former old Quaker Resort. Installed in 1904 they were still in decent shape in the 1970's. With great saddness sorry to say they willmost likely outlive you Stacey.
