Looking up at  1 WTC from within the Memorial Plaza. This tree of hope, aptly named The Survivor Tree, stands tall in the WTC Plaza, it is said to be the only tree on the grounds that survived the devastation of 9/11. It was nurtured to good health afterwards and now is a symbol of perseverance in the face of tragedy. Read more here: http://911memorial.org/survivor-tree
