d. Tree Studio: The Past, Present, and Future of Detroit Trees
D.TREE STUDIO: THE PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE OF DETROIT TREES
d.Tree Studio: The Past, Present, and Future of Detroit Trees is a special exhibition in partnership with the College for Creative Studies. Describing a five-year journey of building a new relationship with the city's trees.
In 2018, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History identified three dead and dying Zelkova trees on its campus. They were destined to be mulched. Instead, the trees sparked an idea between The Wright Museum and the College for Creative Studies.
They decided to learn about the history of Detroit’s trees by creating the Detroit tree, or d.Tree project. Two Institutions, three trees, and twelve makers created together a new model for sustainably caring for and disposing of urban trees.
