The largest smiley face in the world?
Friday 11 Dec 2020
As the smiley is supposed to be yellow, larch was used as the base and for the eyes and mouth, douglas fir was planted. As the larch turns yellow in the autumn, that is the best time to see the giant smiley.
According to Hampton Lumber, it took a week to plant the smiley in 2011. They used a rope to measure the circle and the eyes and mouth were triangulated from that point.
