I love how this project blends into the woods, but nature is unpredictable, what happens when the trees die and want to fall? What about termites or insects and animals making the tree trunks their home, and possibly coming into the house? Don't get me wrong, the integration is amazing, but I'd like to know how well it's doing over 3 years later.

It's great that you considered the nature as an integral part of the proyect. It's a true example that the nature isn't an obstacle but a need in every building to keep the harmonie between our environment and surroundings.
