Pedro Martin Ureta created (создал) a piece of land art so that it could be viewed (его можно рассмотреть) from an airplane. It turns out (оказывается) that it is visible (видим) from space, too.

In the fertile (плодородный)  lowland plains (низменные равнины) of Argentina, a guitar-shaped forest grows amidst  (посреди) the farmland. The project was started in 1979 by Ureta on his farm near the town of Laboulaye, and it has become a wonder for pilots and passengers flying over the region. Together with his children, Ureta created the forest in a tribute (в честь) to his wife, Graciela, who died during childbirth in 1977. News reports claim (утверждают) that Ureta has never seen his creation (создание) from the air, except for (кроме) photos from friends.

According to (согласно) news reports, the forest is composed  of  (состоит из) more than 7,000 cypress (кипариса) and eucalyptus trees. It stretches (простирается) nearly (почти) a kilometer across the landscape (пейзаж).
