Did you even know that Palo Alto HAD an urban forester? He loves trees!

I was not aware! This is cool:

Sometimes, trees in Palo Alto's aging forest will have to be removed -- a sensitive topic. Passmore said he will work on ways to replace the old, dying forest with new trees in a timely way so the lush canopy will remain.

Besides trees, there are always the human considerations in Passmore's urban-forest design.

"The fun part about urban forestry is how to connect people with nature," he said.
