75. The Worst Trees, Saving Your Ash, and The Shrimp Olympics w/ Dr. Dave Coyle
Bradford Pear trees suck. You know, it know, and most importantly today's guest Dr. Dave Coyle knows it. Dave is an Assistant Professor of Forest Health and Invasive Species at Clemson University and is an expert on all things tree and insect. We discussed past diseases and insects that have had huge negatuve impacts on tree populations, invasive species, life in academia, the importance of outreach, and competitive shrimp sports. Dave is an impressive scientist and an outstanding educator and communicator. I know you're going to really enjoy this one!
