49 dead trees "planted" in Madison Square Park

Maya Lin installed 49 dead Atlantic White Cedar trees in a park in New York City to warn of climate change, reports Reuters.

"They're called, 'Ghost Forests,' so I wanted to bring a ghost forest to raise awareness about this phenomenon," she added, noting that more than 50% of Atlantic Cedars on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard have been lost. The trees, some of them 80 years old, are from the Atlantic Pine Barrens of New Jersey, which is about 100 miles (160 km) from downtown Manhattan.
