Ghost forest in Trafalgar Square

Date : 15th June 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



A 'ghost rainforest' of huge tree stumps from the jungles of Africa is to form a dramatic artwork in London's Trafalgar Square. The display aims to highlight the threat of deforestation. It will surround Nelson's Column - which at 169 feet is about the same height as the trees while alive. By night green laser beams will shine upwards to mark where the trees would have reached if they were still standing in their rainforest in Ghana.
