The callery pear tree was originally planted at the trade center complex in the 1970ís. It was discovered in the rubble weeks after the 9/11 attacks with snapped roots and a blackened trunk. It was taken to the Arthur Ross Nursery in Van Cortlandt Park in The Bronx and nursed back to health. It was 8 feet tall at the time of the attacks and now stands 35 feet tall. The callery pear was replanted at the site on 12/22/2010 and symbolizes the city and countryís resilience.
