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.

This week for Wellness Wednesday we show you a Lat pull over using a dumbbell. This can also be done with a barbell if you don't have any dumbbells to work with. This movement will work your lats, shoulders, triceps, and core. Focus on keeping your back flat, and avoid flaring your ribs when you extend overhead. This is a strength movement, so go slow, and keep the weight under control the whole time. Try adding 3 sets of 10-15 reps to your next workout! Check back again next week for another edition of #wellnesswednesday
