STAMFORD, Conn. — The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens in Stamford will dedicate its Arch of 9/11 Remembrance made of living trees on Friday, Sept. 11, at 11:30 a.m. 

The living tree archway contains 14 offspring trees cultivated from the seeds of the World Trade Center's "Survivor Tree." 

The trees are trained over an arch made of metal and bamboo. The archway will serve as a local place of solitude in a splendid garden setting where Connecticut residents can pay respects to loved ones who perished in the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

The 9/11 Survivor Tree, a callery pear, was nearly dead after the World Trade Center attacks. The tree was removed from the site to nurse and protect it while the memorial was being built. 

It is now replanted at The National September 11 Memorial and Museum in lower Manhattan and has come to symbolize our nation's strength, resilience, and survival. 

The Survivor Tree has been under the watchful care of Bartlett Tree Experts from Stamford.

A brief reception will follow the dedication on the grounds of the Arboretum.

Gov. Dannel Malloy, Stamford Mayor David Martin and other officials will attend.

The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens is located at 151 Brookdale Road. Call 203.883.4052 or visit the website for more information.
