dimensions variable


Site alterations on the surface of tree stumps clustered around Fort Jay. The stumps are all that remains of trees planted at various times by the Army and Coast Guard when the open grassy expanses served as a golf course. The trees were viewed as ‘inauthentic’ and removed by the National Park Service when the island was made into a public park.
