A Tree Grows In Detroit

A box elder tree grows from a soil made of ash and pulp from science textbooks in the Detroit Public Schools' Roosevelt Warehouse. A man's body was discovered in a frozen lift shaft here. It is assumed he had been there for some months as his face had decomposed.


  1. Nice video. Sad to see a once thriving place now a wasteland. The tree photo is beautiful.

  2. The tree is a symbol of hope.
