Sprout Lands: William Bryant Logan with Robin Wall Kimmerer

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

10:30–11:30 a.m.

William Bryant Logan is an arborist on the faculty at NYBG and the award-winning author of four books. His most recent, Sprout Lands: Tending the Endless Gift of Trees, is a poetic and practical global journey to rediscover and celebrate the lost traditions of tree pruning that sustained human life and culture for millennia, a time when the responsible, reciprocal relationship between humans and trees created the healthiest, most sustainable, most diverse woodlands we have ever known.

Lecture followed by conversation with Robin Wall Kimmerer, Ph.D., SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor, College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and author of Braiding Sweetgrass.
