Former graduate student intern Myles Ritchie, who created the Exceptional Tree (ET) map in June by visiting
nearly all the 700 ETs statewide, has returned this month to build on the valuable work he has done so far.
To see a great example of Myles' work with ETs see his short video at: https://youtu.be/mLaXRa2Memo
Myles' role is mainly outreach into the community to raise awareness of ETs, not just among the
public, but also among professionals like landscape architects, arborists and tree trimmers.
An example of what is included in his new program will be a presentation at the retirement home
Arcadia in early September. Myles will discuss the value of trees using the data he has assembled so far, then he will discuss the many trees on the Arcadia property.
If there is interest and it is appropriate, he will encourage the Arcadia residents to nominate trees on their
property as well in their close-in neighborhood.
