Torre Guinigi

A commenter at Slate (where my latest was reposted) pointed to this 120-foot tall, 14th century Tuscan tower

as an example of trees that live atop skyscrapers. At 12 stories, it’s tall, but not quite at the height which many architects are proposing to plant trees. Plus, I’m guessing these trees get a lot of TLC given their cultural status.
