Greening The City
trees, leaves, greenery, plantsTrees do a lot for a city. Beyond their beauty, they’ve been shown to increase property values, reduce crime, and new research shows they can even enhance your brain power. As a result of these findings, the city of Boston has pledged to plant 100,000 trees before 2020, but progress is slow — it turns out planting trees is more expensive and controversial than anyone anticipated.

Guests:
  Jeremy Dick, Director of Property and Horticulture at the Boston Natural Areas Network
  Tim De Chant, environmental journalist and author of the blog Per Square Mile
