In this episode, David Warnock speaks with Morgan Grove, research scientist for the U.S.D.A Forest Service. Grove is a self-described 'social ecologist' and studies the impact of trees upon residents' quality of life.
Grove was featured in The Baltimore Social Innovation Journal.
In this web extra, Grove describes what trees best adapt to Baltimore soil, and goes into the history of the trees that were once planted in Charm City soil.
After Warnock asks Grove to explain what a social ecologist is, Grove describes the surprising findings from his research, explains the complications with planting more trees in Baltimore, and dispels the urban myth that fruit trees draw rats.
