Ghost Forest in Trafalgar Square!

On Friday, I was in London and saw a pretty amazing sight ...massive tree trunks placed around Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square!

Ghost Forest is an ambitious project by Angela Palmer seeking to raise public awareness of the connections between deforestation and climate change. It involves taking a series of 10 rainforest tree stumps, most with their buttress roots still attached, from a regulated, commercially logged tropical rainforest in Ghana.
The tree stumps were presented as a “ghost forest” in Trafalgar Square in London from 16-22 November 2009 (so if you didn't see it, sadly you missed it!) and are moving to Copenhagen for 7-18 December 2009 to coincide with the UN's COP15 Climate Change Conference.
