The rock and the bench have somehow become the property of DDOT and are in storage. The tree has been transplanted to a nursery where it is in ICU, it was not doing well at all.

DDOT's plan is to replace them in or close to their original spot sometime 2008.

Note the word "plan".

Correction: The tree, known as a "wishing tree," was characterized by the artiste as a "living breathing sculpture."

The rock and the bench have somehow become the property of DDOT and are in storage. The tree has been transplanted to a nursery where it is in ICU, it was not doing well at all.
DDOT's plan is to replace them in or close to their original spot sometime 2008.

Really? I was speculating as to whether Buzz Silverman carted them all across the street to his neighboring Parker Webb building and somehow incorporated the "art" into his world renowned Fluxus art collection on the top floor.
Make no new female acquaintances; avoid soirees; call on old friends occasionally. Write good letters to absent friends, and attend church once each Sunday.
