New trees planted outside Terminal 1 are decorated in lights to offer a perfect accent to the terminal’s domes.

The historic vaulted domes at Terminal 1 always cast a shine in the night’s sky. Now the Airport is taking advantage of nature to feature a new accent. Lambert has planted a half-dozen Heritage River Birch trees in front of one of the domes. The new trees and a set of large planters are part of a courtyard makeover to enhance the views looking in and looking out of the terminal. The trees are now trimmed in classic white lights for the holiday season. The new trees feature exfoliating bark that reveals a colorful inner trunk as they grow. The trees can grow 30 to 60 feet high.
