The largest smiley face in the world?

Friday 11 Dec 2020

Is it really the largest smiley in the World? We donĀ“t know, but in the coastal part of Oregon, USA, Hampton Lumber has planted this smiley that measures 80 metres in diameter.

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.
