A tree was planted in the name of late Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele on Monday, November 21st. Steele was an employee/heavy equipment operator for the New York Department of Parks before his career took off with Carnivore. Steele became manager of Brooklyn Heights Promenade Park, and the fans have commemorated it with this tree at Prospect Park.

Said former Type O Negative drummer Johnny Kelly, "[The oak tree planting is] something that's been a long time in the making. A lot of fans took it upon themselves to do something special for Peter. It is something that is in the true spirit of what Peter was about and who he was. This Peter truly would've appreciated."

Steele hated trees. He hated commemorations. He hated everything. We, the hating public, should commemorate Steele with hate.
