Worth Avenue Palm Trees Go to 9/11 Memorial

While New Yorkers fight over the mosque near Ground Zero, some palm trees that graced Worth Avenue are replanted in a 9/11 memorial in Palm Beach Gardens:

After many calls to Burkhardt Construction from a number of parties, but no serious followups, Boynton Landscape Co. of West Palm Beach stepped in to rescue some of the trees and plant them at Palm Beach Gardens’ soon-to-be-completed 09-11-01 Memorial at the city’s Fire Station No. 3 on Northlake Boulevard.

About 15 trees were taken off the street and to the site in June, said Noel DelValle, business development manager at Boynton Landscape Co.
