100 trees give voice to 100 perspectives

The TREE MUSEUM celebrates the communities and ecosystems along the Grand Concourse, a 100 year-old boulevard in The Bronx. Visitors can listen in on local stories and the intimate lives of trees offered by current and former residents: from beekeepers to rappers, historians to gardeners, school kids to scientists.

Satellite exhibtions were at Wave Hill (June 21 - Oct 12, 2009) and The Bronx Museum of the Arts (Aug 2 - Oct 25, 2009).

tree-hugging will be encouraged but is not mandatory!
