Most cat trees in the market today do not look natural at all. If you’re looking for a cat tree that resembles a cat’s natural habitat a bit more, consider getting a cat condo that looks like a tree.
Here are 7 cat trees we’ve found that looks like a tree.
1. Artificial Tree with LeavesSee Product Details
2. Kitty Palm Cat Tree with Ficus Foliage Top, Green Carpet, Manila Rope, 36 Inches
If the artificial tree above isn’t to your liking, how about this palm cat tree instead? It comes with a ficus foliage top and manila rope for all the scratching actions your cats desire. Additionally, the green foliage adds a splash of color to a living room that make look dull.
3. Go Pet Club Cat Tree Furniture, 74-Inch, Black/Brown
This Go Pet Club Cat Tree comes with leaves. Yes you heard that right, it comes with fake plastic leaves. The colour selection of brown and green leaves gives the impression that this cat condo is supposed to resemble a tree.
The reviews for this particular cat condo also seems quite positive.

First, the carpet on here is so soft – I wasn’t expecting that. I was expecting the standard scratchy stuff. It feels more like fake fur material (not really fluffy or thick), but it does the job nicely and feels good to the human touch.
Second, it only took about 20 min to put together.
Third, the stability is much better than I thought. I looked at several cat tree’s varying in price from under $100 to over $300. This one seemed mid-range so I was expecting mid-range quality. Not at all. It is sturdy and strong. The basket was my biggest concern since my 12 lb cat loves the hammock style thing. It is made of metal inside, so I don’t have to worry about it breaking like I would have if it was just a thin piece of wood.
Fourth, the look is just beautiful! I hadn’t expected the leaves to come with (thought that was just dressing for the website pics), but they did. The overall look of this with and without the leaves is so wonderful that it looks just fine in my living room. I don’t have to worry about it standing out as an eye-sore or feel like I have to explain to visitors that, yeah, that’s the cat tree. It makes it’s own statement.
Fifth, the design is wonderful! I’ve seen many other cat trees, but this one seemed to have several different styles for the landings. Many have the flat landings and a “house”. I’ve seen several with the hammock type thing. But this was the first I saw with the half-barrel hide out. This has so many different elements, every cat is sure to find something it likes. Each of mine have at least two spots I’ve seen them enjoy.
Last, the size is very nice. I’m sure you can see the measurements and get an idea, but it is such a nice size I thought it worth mentioning. It is not small, by any means, but it is also not overpowering.
Well, that’s my take on it so far. My kitties are enjoying it immensely. I love seeing them and it in my living room instead of hidden away in the bedroom.
4. Kitty Mansions Redwood Cat Tree
This cat tree is supposed to resemble, you guessed it, a Redwood Tree. The vertical posts are lined with sisal roped dyed with a gorgeous deep red that is distinctive of a Redwood Tree. It also comes with leaves and vines. For a cat condo of this size, it can easily accommodate up to three cats easily.See Product Details
5. Silk Plants Direct Multi-Level Birch Cat Tree House & Post
The cat tree is literally a tree. It is made up of natural birch trunk & branches complete with authentic replica birch foliage. This is as close as you can get to a real cat tree condo. However, it comes with a price. At a hefty $800, this is only available to the most loving cat owners (with deep pockets). However, the workmanship looks excellent so you are getting a solid Made in America product with this cat condo.See Product Details
6. Kitty Hollow Cat Tree : Size 63 INCH
Solidly built, it lasted one cat owner 15 years before he gave it to his nephew. This cat tree comes with hollowed out insides for your cats to prowl around. The perches serve as a resting point for up to 2 cats comfortable.See Product Details
7. Kitty Mansions Tasmania Cat Tree
It also has positive reviews
See Product Details
This is a great looking cat tower, and our kitten loves it so far. She is too little to reach all the levels yet but enjoys it just the same. We also have a 20 year old cat so I like that it has a little “den” at the bottom (which is also good for stability). It seems pretty sturdy, which is good since our kitten is a ragdoll and could get a little large.
It is covered with fleecy-type fabric that is soft to the touch and the posts are tightly wrapped with dyed rope. It was very easy to put together considering it came with very rudimentary illustrated instructions, and it took me about 45 minutes to set it up (you’ll need a footstool unless you are extremely tall).
I wasn’t going to put the leaves on it, but they actually look pretty good and our kitten likes to play with them (she eventually pulled them all off, and it looks just fine without the leaves too). All in all, I’d say it’s a good buy if you are looking for something that doesn’t have a large footprint and looks nice in your living room.
BONUS: Cat Craft 22″ Three Tier Carpet Climbing Cat Tree
Stretch your imagination and buy silk leaves and vines yourself with this no nonsense cat condo. This cat condo is a vertical stand that’s lined with carpet, NOT sisal rope. It has 3 levels with a landing board on each level. This board simulates a tree’s branch. For all you DIY-ers, one improvement you can make to this is to coil sisal rope round the vertical post. In our experience, carpet goes really quickly if you have 1 or more cats at home.
