S2E10 — Urban Deforestation and What We Can Do About It with Matthew Wells of the City of Santa Monica

November 3, 2021

I speak with Matthew Wells on the shocking rate of urban tree loss and how technology can help.

This week, I am joined by Matthew Wells, Public Landscape Manager for the City of Santa Monica in Southern California, to discuss urban deforestation on public and private lands, why we're losing trees and the space to plant and grow new ones in cities, the differences between tree care in the USA and the UK, and Matt's frustration with the inherent lack of sustainability in the tree care industry.
