Today my colleague asked me, “are you going to test these sensors on a tree up in the mountains so you can go somewhere out-of-town?” My response was, “Nope, I’m putting them on trees at campus and at my house.” This colleague, an engineer who works in the basement of our building, looked at me like I was missing a grand opportunity. I had to explain more about why I’m psyched to work on city trees before he came around.
Do you live in a city or its suburbs? Probably. If not, you’re one of the few. I have either lived in the suburbs or near the heart of a city for my entire life.
Do you ever think about how plants and animals are enjoying the city life? I certainly didn’t until the past few years.
