Steve Dale is joined in studio by Climate Reality Leader Dr. Karen Daiter, and Co-Chair of the Save Your Ash Coalition John Friedmann, and over the phone by 40th Ward Ald. Andre Vazquez to discuss the importance of ash trees to the “green infrastructure” of Chicago and the fight to conserve them. They then highlight the benefits that ash trees, and trees in general, provide, such as cleaning the air, enhancing mental health, and enhancing focus, among other things.
