Ghost Forest Project

We spotted this project a few days and got very excited. The fourth plinth has been an incredible statement, and what better way to follow that than to plant a forest of tree stumps in the middle of trafalgar square?

The project is the work of Angela Palmer, and is aimed at raising public awareness of deforestation. She has been sourcing and shipping the huge stumps from Ghana over the past few months and it’s all set to go in mid-November. After this, it will go off to Copenhagen to stand outside the buildings hosting the UN Conference whilst the climate change summit is on.

This may be so left-field that even Anthony Gormley said it couldn’t be done, but it’s ready to go, and we can’t wait…
