Most buildings (especially in dense urban centers) are oftentimes only as green-conscious as convenience and minimal effort allows; 101 Warren Street is not one of those buildings.

With exactly 101 Pines scattered across it's top surfaces, 101 Warren Street goes above and beyond the call of duty by treating its residents (and the residents of nearby buildings) to a fantastically encouraging sight: a genuine urban forest.

Implications - The types of Pine trees on the top of 101 Warren Street are called Austrian Pines. The pretty trees are green all year long and "help decrease urban heat island effect." They are planted in a specific "formation of mounded ellipse-shaped forms." It would be amazing if all buildings had forests atop their premises.
