There's a fun event happening this Sunday in Schenley Park. The certified arborists from Davey Tree will be on hand to answer questions, but also listen to your favorite stories about trees. The company will donate one dollar to the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy Tree Fund for every person who shares a story. I'm always telling people on the Sunday morning radio show to ask a certified arborist any tree questions, this is your chance.

Arborists from your local Davey Pittsburgh offices will also be at the park, and trees throughout the park will don a Davey tag to display the many benefits each tree provides to the area. The Every Tree Tells a Story Photography Exhibit, featuring original photography of 12 of the most magnificent trees from around the country, will also be on display.

The Cultural Landscape Foundation has partnered with American Photo to create a traveling exhibition of original photography featuring the 2010 Landslide® selections: Every Tree Tells a Story. Twelve prize-winning and renowned photographers capture these seminal trees and tree groupings in a collection of 25 images. The exhibition will be on display at the Carnegie Library from July 1, 2014 until September 1, 2014.

The exhibition has been made possible by generous support from The Davey Tree Expert Company.
