Exhibit:'The Art of Trees - A forest Gallery'
To celebrate the start of the International Year of Forests, the Forestry and Timber Section together with the United States Mission to the UN in Geneva and UNOG, organized the exhibition “The Art of Trees – a Forest Gallery”. This exhibition in the Hall des Pas Perdus of the Palais des Nations included almost 100 living trees, together with illustrations by United States artist Monte Dolack, and other forest and wood products from North America and Europe. This forest gallery was an occasion to reflect the growing appreciation of the contribution of forests to economic, environmental and social wellbeing. After the exhibition the trees were planted in the park of the Palais des Nations, further enriching the biodiversity of the park.
