What is the Value of a Tree?

Interdisciplinary Panel Discussion

Wednesday, February 22, 2017
  4:30–5:30 p.m.

  Additional Dates (3)

Location: Riverside / Idyllwild / Palm Desert
Category: Lecture

Description: Trees feature prominently in global culture. Iconic trees include the source of Newton’s apple, Buddha’s enlightenment under the Bodhi tree, the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and the sacred Tree of Life in mythologies around the world. Trees provide security and shelter and are valuable resources for sciences, health and technology. It’s frankly hard to imagine a world without trees. Clearly, trees are important, if not essential, to human culture.

Join us for an evolving discussion about TREES.

Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
