Gardening Club Meeting

  • Maplewood Memorial Library 51 Baker Street Maplewood, NJ, 07040 United States (map)

Subject: The Story of the 9/11 Memorial Trees
Speaker: Paul Cowie

From 2005 to 2011, Paul Cowie and Associates worked as a design team specialist to landscape architect Peter Walker and Partners on the design and implementation of the tree planting at the National September 11 Memorial at Ground Zero in New York. Having been intimately involved in the process for six years—from development of the project specifications, through procurement and preparation of the trees, to the start of planting— Paul Cowie will share a wide range of photographs, stories, and technical reviews from each step of the process. The logistics of this immense garden design project are just fascinating.
