Has this "artist" spent much time in a real forest?

LOL They planted the trees much to closely together. Disease will easily pass from tree to tree. Creating a fire hazard.

I think the artist is missing the point that unused land is reclaimed quickly by nature. The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is an example. It's filled with trees and wildlife.

I've seen local farmland and pastures revert to pine trees in 10 to 15 years. The original family gets older and stops working the land. Nature soon fills it with brush and trees. Pine seems to pop up the quickest in my state. Pine will completely take over unused land in 25 years. It can be harvested for good money.

This artist's exhibit looks like an abandoned stadium that has been overrun with trees. The mowed grass is the only tip off it's maintained by people.
