The Tree Museum

img_0651

Yesterday Katie Holten, an artist originally from Ireland, has organized a presentation about The Tree Museum. The Tree Museum is composed of 100 trees on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx. As you walk along this street, you will see phone numbers under each of these trees to call audio guides. When you call, you will hear a little story about a particular tree that you see or about various services that this tree species provides for urban communities. Before this presentation I did not realize that I live in a museum, but two or three trees that are part of this exhibit are growing near my house! The Tree Museum is a 4 mile long museum that collaborates with the MillionTreesNYC initiative, and is open 24/7.
