Saving Nature At The VUE Photography/story by Ed Bertha As the VUE continues to rise skyward we look back on the day a lone Reclinata Palm Tree, the only living thing on the job site except for the scurrying of craftsman and machines, was saved from obliteration by a move to the end of the Ritz Carlton driveway near 41.
