Tree Mountain - A Living Time Capsule :: Agnes Denes (1996) 
This massive earthwork and reclamation project involved the  construction of a “mountain” on the site of an old gravel quarry and  the planting, by volunteers from different countries, of 11,000 Finnish  Pine trees in an intricate pattern.
The volunteers were then each given inheritable certificates (valid for  400 years) which granted them responsibility for the stewardship of one  of the trees. This project was first announced by the Government of  Finland at the World Summit in Rio de Janeiro as a contribution to  global ecology.
