Christo Wraps Trees

Claire Doole reports from Basel, Switzerland, that artists Christo and his partner Jeanne-Claude have wrapped 163 trees in a city park in 55 thousand square yards of silver-gray polyester fabric. This is the same husband and wife team of "environmental artists" that wrapped the Reichstag in Germany and France's Pont Neuf.
