Lost Man Creek: a Miniature Forest in Brooklyn With 4,000 Dawn Redwood Trees

Brooklyn artist Spencer Finch has a new exhibit in Downtown Brooklyn titled Last Man Creek that includes over 4,000 small Dawn Redwood trees in a miniature forest.

[…] Finch partnered with the Save the Redwoods League to identify a 790-acre section of the protected Redwood National Park in California. Significantly scaling down the topography and tree canopy heights, he reimagined this corner of the California forest for MetroTech at a 1:100 scale. While the original trees range from 98 to 380 feet – taller than the buildings that surround the plaza – the trees in the installation are just one to four feet in height.
