Katherine Drew & Scott Elliot On Their Film, "The Trees"

"The Trees" was filmed over the course of 5 years with the cooperation of the National September 11th Memorial & Museum and features unprecedented access to the construction site. It is the story of the design and building of the 9/11 Outdoor Living Tree Memorial and features WTC Memorial lead design architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker and the hundreds of builders, artists and arborists who painstakingly grew, transported and implemented the urban forest at the 9/11 Memorial Park site beginning in 2010. At the film's core is the story of The Survivor Tree, the charred Callery pear tree that was the last living thing to be saved from the rubble of the WTC site after the 2001 attacks.
