In one sense, trees are passive elements of the landscape, vulnerable to the vagaries of environmental change and human activity. On the other hand, they are tremendously adaptable and responsive to opportunity, and their presence (or absence) influences life all around them. In this illustrated talk, Justin will discuss what our native trees can tell us about our landscapes as we explore the various ecological and cultural roles that they play—past and present—as well as their potential to enrich our future landscapes.
