Remember the Tree that Moved?


Remember when the Brooklyn Botanic Garden moved a 200 ton Ginkgo Biloba tree to make way for its new visitor center, to be located at at the entrance to the garden off the parking lot to the Brooklyn Museum?

If you didn't know there used to be a tree near the herb garden, you wouldn't be able to tell. The ground is level, and if you look in the distance, you can see the tree, at home in its new location!
