SUPER trees in Singapore
Just as you think you've seen everything . . .
Along Singapore's waterfront, these "Supertrees" have sprouted. They are vertical gardens, embedded with environmentally sustainable functions and range from 25-50 meters in height [that's 9-16 stories tall[, with emphasis placed on the vertical display of tropical flowering climbers, ferns and epiphytes from around the globe. The "Supertrees" are part of the government's efforts to bring their national gardens into the city center. (Jakarta Post)
They are quite dramatic, but I wonder what Dr. Seuss' Lorax would think. I also wonder if they'll rust!
