cirby: The biggest problem with having trees on skyscrapers isn't the weather or the wind.It's the weight.
dv-ous: Happy Hours:Trees can certainly survive growing that many feet above sea level.Sure. The air pressure isn't a problem.It's the wind - and that tends to go hand in hand with being 2700 feet above the GROUND, wherever that ground may be.
thecpt: They do know about vegetated roofs right? still waiting for a LEED project where I get to do one.
TheRameres: Came here for the Portlandia reference, leaving satisfied.
Surpheon: You may wait a long time. The cost of a green roof can always be better spent else where. The only reason to go with them is either aesthetics or as an amenity (if you have no land, like in NYC, or demand for a private yard, like a condo penthouse, then they can pencil out).
