Ever marveled at the imposing trees around campus?

This course will explore trees on campus using Bracewell’s marvelous “Trees of Stanford” as a rough guide. We will develop tools and explore ideas that will allow the wider community to cherish and appreciate the oft-neglected trees on campus. The course will include guest lectures that focus on the theme of trees: from literature to the physics and biology of trees, to the environmental impact of global forest loss.
