Palo Alto welcomes new urban forester Walter Passmore
Joyce Park stashed this in 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.
