Pacific Northwest Trees and the Role They Play - radio series

As a "tree guy" I've been enjoying a week-long series of KUOW radio segments about trees in the Northwest and the role they play in our lives. Sarah Waller's reporting helps listeners understand more about trees and forestry.

Go to a pretty good, short slide show that accompanies the series.

Over half of Washington state is covered in forest. That's nearly 2 billion trees — about 250 for every person living here. Let's just say my wife and I have more than our per-capita share. Yet I've learned a thing or two from the programs.

This search link should give you a list of the segments once they've aired.

Here's a link to the first in the series, "More than a Tree," also titled "An Unlikely Hero."
