Surviving tree from 9/11 replanted at memorial site

A tree that survived the 9/11 attacks was placed back at the new memorial after being cared for in the Bronx.

The tree was covered with ash and thrown about a half-block during the attacks. But, it managed to survive and was taken care of at the Arthur Ross Nursery in Van Cortlandt Park.

Now, the tree is back by the memorial where it once stood.
