Held between Earth Day and Arbor Day, the world’s first funeral for a tree will occur at Judson Memorial Church in Washington Square Park. The honoree of the event is Will O. Baum, a tree that started his life in 1919 in Inwood and later moved to Brooklyn. After he died at the age of 100, Judson Church seeks to honor the noble tree—and advocate for trees everywhere—with this exciting event. Matthew Morrison of Glee will emcee and serve as “tree minister,” and gospel choirs, poets, and other speakers will appear as well. An immersive forest experience, as well as food and drink, are also on the agenda. Profits will benefit the regenerative agriculture efforts of trees.org. Thurs., April 25, 6-9pm. 55 Washington Sq.
