The "Survivor Tree," a Callery pear tree, was planted on the original World Trade Center plaza in the 1970s. After 9/11 workers found the damaged tree in the wreckage, reduced to an eight-foot stump. The tree was nursed back to health in a New York City park and grew to be 30-feet-tall. In March, 2010, the tree was uprooted by severe storms but it survived again, and was returned to the WTC site in December, 2010.

The "Survivor Tree" symbolizes the power of natural recovery and nurturing together as a living, creative and cultural response to catastrophe.

Nature-culture dualism reference.
