First Friday: Trees Are Family

Arborist Erik Hutson of Safari Tree will compare and contrast the anatomy of trees and human beings, including how the vascular systems work, how they react to disease and treatments, and nourishment requirements. Both trees and people are living and breathing organisms, and this may help explain why some of us gain a strong emotional attachment to these rooted, stationary family members. Mr. Hutson is a certified arborist and leads the tree care division of Safari Tree, specializing in treatments and diagnosis.
