“Urban forest” sounds like an oxymoron unless you’re Beau Brodbeck. Beau teaches the finer points of the how, when, where, and why of trees in urban landscapes. I was introduced to him through a listener who had just been in one of his seminars and emailed me to say “You gotta have him on” and when I chatted with him I knew she was right.

And how we often plant them in such a… Read More

It wasn’t what he had intended but the ball went forward and ended up not far from the pin. He said to me, “Cam, that shot is called a son-in-law.” “Oh, really?” I said, “Why is that?” “It’s called a son-in-law,” he said, “because it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind but, it’ll do.” I have laughed at that for ten years or more.

Posted On August 11, 2022

How would you like to travel all over the world and get paid to do it? Many of us would jump at that chance, but it wasn’t something Jeb Brooks set about to do initially.
