Now, the site will be coming to life as the first trees are being prepped for their trip to Ground Zero.
9/11 memorial vice president Lynn Rasic gave WCBS 880 reporter Peter Haskell the details on the tribute.
The first of the swamp white oaks will be loaded up Friday at a central New Jersey nursery and moved into place over the weekend.
The memorial has already taken shape with the two one-acre reflecting pools fully formed.
The plaza should be completed by 9/11 of 2011.
