Congratulations to Audrey Galex of the AIB Network for receiving the Georgia Urban Forest Council 2016 Outstanding Media Award for developing this documentary, AIB Presents - Tending Our Trees, found at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inSkU1h_qTg
A Spanish proverb says: "It will beggar a doctor to live where orchards thrive." Perhaps that is because research shows that surrounding ones self with trees and other flora and fauna is good for one's health. In this AIB Presents, Tending our Trees, we not only explore the benefits of life around trees, but how metropolitan areas like Atlanta are working to balance maintaining its tree canopy with smart growth. We hear from those whose job it is to manage and tend to the trees about what it takes to keep Atlanta a city in a forest.
