Ghost Forest

Thanks to Paul Cornish for another interesting tip-off.
This time to a GHOST FOREST.

Ghost Forest is an original and ambitious project by Angela Palmer that seeks 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 will be presented as a “ghost forest” firstly in Trafalgar Square in London, and then in Copenhagen to coincide with the UN Climate Change Conference in December.

Pity I'm not in London until the week after...
Would love to hear from anyone who manages to see the trees in situ....
