Ologies: Dendrology (TREES) with J. Casey Clapp

Do trees have feelings? How do they talk? How old can they get? Are there any tree stories that will make me cry? Spoiler: YES.

Possibly the world’s most enthusiastic tree expert, J. Casey Clapp, shows Alie his many tree tattoos, explains how roots communicate to each other, addresses “crown shyness” and schools Alie on the mental health benefits of tree proximity. Also: banana facts and Casey f*cking hates apples.
