A canopy into the limbs of the Metasequoias is the latest addition to the Morris Arboretum experience. A stairway brings visitors front and center into one of the Arboretum's most spectacular groves of trees via an installation called 'meta Metasequoia.' Once aloft, a viewing basket provides an open-air room big enough to sit in, allowing visitors to linger within the branches and feel the childhood wonder of seeing the world from above.
