The New York City Public Art Fund, the Save the Redwoods League, and artist Spencer Finch have collaborated to recreate a California redwood forest in downtown Brooklyn–at a 1:100 scale, of course. While “California’s Lost Man Creek is 380 feet tall, the Brooklyn version will stand around 4 feet high.” The trees representing┬áthe redwoods are metasequoias, which will be trimmed down periodically to maintain their height at the appropriate scale.
