Lost Man Creek Tree Adoption

Lost Man Creek Tree Adoption

About the Event


To mark the closing of Lost Man Creek in March, Public Art Fund and artist Spencer Finch will host a free, community tree giveaway of the young Dawn Redwood trees featured in the exhibition. Available for adoption, trees range from 1 to 4 feet tall and will be potted with instructions for care. Additional trees will be donated to organizations across New York State including NYC Parks, The Trust for Governors Island, Prospect Park Alliance, Kids Escaping Drugs (KED), and more.

Thought to be extinct, the Dawn Redwoods were rediscovered in the 1940s in central China. The seeds were reintroduced to the United States in the late 1940s and now flourish across the country. Under the right conditions these trees can grow five feet a year, reaching up to 130 feet or more when fully mature. They are also commonly cared for as bonsai trees and house plants.

This event is rain or shine
