Christmas has been over for more than a month now, but there are still a few Christmas Tree causalities lining the streets of New York City. Of the trees that are gone, their pine needle still pave many streets as a lasting reminder of (mostly) everyone’s favorite holiday.

For the second straight year, Brooklyn artist Michael Neff, created this public art installation called, “Suspended Forest” in Williamsburg. Neff took the discarded Christmas trees from the streets in Williamsburg and hung them up under an overpass for the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. Michael wanted to give these abandoned trees a new purpose and in his words, “wanted to give these trees another opportunity, and perhaps encourage people to think about our consumption around Christmas.”
