A rather strange mystery has developed in Midtown Omaha. Who is stabbing trees in public parks with meat-wrapped knives, and why?

Over the past 25 years, a fascinating transition has taken place in areas of England that were absolutely decimated by mining operations. It's incredible to see what a few million saplings can do given the right amount of time.

Have you ever wondered what a squirrel sees as it zips through the trees? Well, one inquisitive individual grabbed a GoPro and took it on a canopy tour. This is a really fun video to watch.

SUNDAY SHOW & TELL
vol.4

The anniversary of Hurricane Sandy brought stark reminders that the recovery process for those affected will last for years and that the urban forest will take the longest to replace of all that was lost.  That being said, we are happy to have planted 14 new purple locusts at home sites in Belle Harbor, Queens over the weekend. 

Our first entry in this week's Sunday Show & Tell is a video shot by a group of cyclists who rode into the storm surge.  Then, a series of photos really puts the recovery process into perspective.  In commemoration of JFK Groves, which also took place this weekend, we have an archival film of the President planting a tree in Canada in 1961.
