What's the story behind this one? I would love to know the ecosystem benefits as well as the creative ones.

Hi Sarah! I read about this project on Pop-Up City: here is their article about the project It is my impression that the floating trees are not sustainable (ironic) long term--they are designed as thought pieces. But the article concludes "When summer is over, the trees are brought to the land to be rooted in a local city park, elongating the lifespan of the project as part of the city and its cultural community."
