The tree was treated and permitted as required by law to cross state lines from California into Nevada. A full-time professional tree mover was hired to remain focused solely on the care and health of the tree during it's travels and performance.
The performance was choreographed to ensure the tree remained on the playa for no longer than 24 hours.
Today, the redwood tree is alive and well and enjoying a certain kind of fame among it's friends at the nursery.
Is that what really happened with the tree? The site doesn't talk about any troubles the tree caused.
Clarification: Not doubting your story Bob... doubting the site.
Was this tree prohibited because of LNT? Heaven forbid that a few pieces of bark might wind up among the sagebrush downwind.
I'm contemplating slaughtering a couple dozen Italian cypresses next year.
