History of tree flocking
The first signs of flocking began 3000 years ago, with evidence of using applications of resin glue on natural fibers. In the 12th century, flocking advanced to start the use of mortars and wall coverings. Tree flocking machines of the 19th century included the use of simple electrical appliances. This century saw the start of using electrostatic energy to move particles in a more efficient way for professional flocking.
The 20th century had numerous developments of the electrostatic technology. European technology made significant developments with direct voltage machines. They use complex materials and principles to refine any surface and enhance the final aesthetic of the tree.
