Christmas Trees Become Part of Suspended Forest in Queens

New, 2 comments

If you still need to get rid of your Christmas tree, here's some good news. Today is the final day of this year's MulchFest, where the city will take your tree and the city will turn it into mulch to "nourish plantings across the city." At certain sites, you can see your tree get chipped and get your very own bag of mulch. Some people's holiday greenery was, however, spared the conversion to plant food, and became part of a cool art exhibit in Queens.

Suspended Forest 2016 Installation at Knockdown Center from Michael Neff on Vimeo.

San Francisco artist Michael Neff has turned 40 trees into a "Suspended Forest" at the Knockdown Center in Maspeth, the Observer reported. The installation isn't his first of this kind, having previously hung trees below the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in Williamsburg. If you want to check them out for yourself, head down Saturday and Sundays between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. The trees will be hanging until January 31.
