Atrium gets new (plant) life
By Amy Schneider

While trees outside are losing their leaves and becoming bare bark for the winter, trees in the Atrium are sporting the fresh foliage of spring.

A project to replace the dead and dying Atrium trees was completed in September, with the installation of four new ficus trees (ficus binnendijkii “alii,” specifically). The plants around the trees are golden pothos and bromeliads.

The old trees were removed overnight between September 7 and 8, and the new ones were brought in between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. September 14-15.

“I would like to thank all those involved for making the operation a tremendous success,” said Chris Warner, Landside Operations manager. “There were no issues or concerns during the removal of the old trees, repair of the damaged planters and bases, or planting of the new trees. The team remained on schedule, and there was minimal impact on the Airport, employees or customers.”
