Listen to Paul Meyer and Edward Sibley Barnard talk with Morning Edition host Jennifer Lynn about what constitutes a Philadelphia tree. https://whyy.org/articles/best_trees/

    The Philly tree? Yes, it's a thing - and there's a guide for that.
    A new resource is available to help nature lovers reach a greater understanding of the trees that line streets, parks, and other spaces in Philadelphia and the region. "Philadelphia Trees: A Field Guide to the City and the Surrounding Delaware Valley," published this year by Columbia University Press, is handy for quickly identifying trees as well as pinpointing the best places to see trees unique to Philadelphia.

    How the Morris Arboretum is working to extend cherry blossom season | Penn Today
    Science & Technology Springtime's ephemeral beauties are abundant at the Morris Arboretum and on Penn's campus, and one horticulturist is striving to extend their all-too-brief bloom period. Just as quickly as the cherry trees on campus burst with pink, the ground is blanketed with blossoms-truly, a blink-and-you'll-miss-it spring delight.
