(09/10/10) THE BRONX - Not all off the survivors of the September 11th attacks were people. One in particular was a tree.

A tree that was brought to the Arthur Ross Nursery in November 2001 was nothing more than ash and branches, according to horticulturalists there. They say the attacks uprooted the tree, sending it flying half a block from where it was planted at Ground Zero. Richie Cabo and Robert Zappala, horticulturalists at the nursery, say it took them four years to replenish it.

Now, the tree is being prepared to be moved to the 9/11 museum in downtown Manhattan in the spring of 2011.
