Flatbush Gardener: Be an NYC Tree Guardian
Here's an interesting entry from the Flatbush Gardener about ways citizens can protect street trees in New York City. Most people don't realize that New York City has a very extensive forested park system. It also has thousands of street trees. These trees grow in a very stressful environment. Without the active support of the people of New York, they wouldn't survive at all.
That's an important lesson for forester. Trees and forests won't prosper, let alone survive, in today's world unless people think they should. Foresters need to work as much with people as with the forests.
