We see trees every day - but what are trees, really? Experts from The Morton Arboretum and Matt Candeias, host of the In Defense of Plants Podcast, will take you on an exploration of what it means to be a tree. This radio show style discussion will touch on why we have forests, why trees are under threat, what The Morton Arboretum is doing to ensure we have more trees in the future. Answer the questions about trees you never knew you had, and get inspired about what all of us can do to help trees.
Host: Matt Candeias, host of the In Defense of Plants Podcast, Matt was raised in the forests of northeastern North America and is obsessed with botany. He earned a master’s degree in community ecology from SUNY Buffalo State and is currently working on a PhD in community ecology with the University of Illinois. When he is not reading, writing, or talking about plants, he is usually hiking and photographing them or trying to grow them in and around his home.
