Overview of Jim’s talk:
The Power of Trees And How It Can Help Save the World

Though they surround us, and are vital to our existence, trees and forests are poorly researched and poorly understood. Jim Robbins, a science writer for the New York Times, and author of the acclaimed The Man Who Planted Trees, describes in his talk the things we do know about them, and the many things we don’t — from their ability to clean up toxic waste to the ways scientists say they connect to the cosmos. Trees heal people, are critical to insects and wildlife as medicine, and, some scientists believe, even have a nervous system that allows them to think, strategize and communicate. Most importantly he explains why trees should be seen as an “ecotechnology” to accomplish a wide range of important functions to heal broken ecosystems and adapt a changing planet.
