The monument project is situated within the temperate deciduous forest. Here, the monument spans across the eastern United States hitting multiple locations that act as memorial locations to the Holocene. Using the oblique, the monument monitors, but importantly, displaces the forest onto a new ground. This new ground acts as the ideal location for the forest to grow and thrive as global warming and the like diminish the forest slowly over time. The monument itself acts as a barrier on one side and monitor on the other. The chevron-like shape bends at the heart of the forest, the mixed mesophytic region, located mainly in West Virginia. Here at the bend the monument reaches its greatest peak giving the trees the altitude they are trying to move towards.
