Tree-mendous airports

An airport is like the front door to a city. So a city that wants to impress visitors could start by fixing up its airport.

At California’s Fresno Yosemite International Airport, that sprucing up will take the form of fake sequoia trees.

According to a story from the Fresno Bee, a grove of six fake sequoia trees will be “planted” in the airport terminal next year as part of a $9.2 million renovation. One will even have a space to walk through.

The goal: to “convey a sense of wilderness” and “improve the city’s image by giving visitors a taste of one of the nation’s most spectacular natural wonders.”
