Tsunami Miracle Pine “Preserved”

It’s called preservation, but in the end, the “miracle pine” that survived the tsunami is actually dying from the salt water. Yet, it’s preservation basically means putting a carbon pole into the trunk and reattaching the branches. It’s basically dead and stuffed at a cost of nearly 2 million dollars. The 270 year old tree will stand in Rikuzentakata as a symbol for much longer time. (ABC – Pine)
