Long Description:
I have not been able to find any credits for this memorial online or on the memorial itself but I find it to be a very touching idea. The plaque says:

This September Tree was planted in memory of the victims of the terrorist attack against the United States that occurred on September 11, 2001.

This September Tree honors all victims of those cowardly acts, but pays particular homage to the 343 New York City Firefighters who perished that terrible day.

This September Tree reminds us of the daring heroism of FDNY Firefighters and the sheer resiliency of the American spirit.

This September Tree rises from the earth like a Phoenix from the ashes, like iconic buildings of stone and metal, like memories of heroes and vistims past, of spirits soaring skyward reminding us all that....
