The Supertree Grove, located in the Garden by the Bay national park, is an incredible sight. A collection of huge artificial trees, standing up to 50 meters tall, they dominate the Singapore skyline, forming an imposing canopy over the city below.
Acting as a vertical garden, the Supertrees collect rainwater to irrigate the huge array of plants and ferns which grow upon the structure. Solar panels generate energy to power the lights which bring the trees alive, illuminating them against the urban backdrop.
Truly, the Supertrees are a spectacular sight. But in an age when concrete is replacing grass at a faster pace than ever before, what harm are we doing to Mother Nature’s grand design?
