Green Superheroes! – with Tree S.T.A.R.S Author Edward Morrow, Cascade Springs Nature Preserve

March 23 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join ISA Certified Arborist Edward Morrow on a walk through Cascade Springs Nature Preserve where we’ll learn how this author was inspired to turn his experiences with trees, tree care professionals, and Atlanta’s urban forest into the stories of his outdoor-adventure series, Tree S.T.A.R.S.

Edward’s original concept for a tree care business book was transformed into a fictional tale crafted to celebrate trees and the importance of the arborists who care for them. Edward’s work brings public awareness–and excitement–to the world of  arboriculture, and he brings a new generation of green heroes to meet the challenges of our times. 

Dominion, released in 2022, is a set of five short stories set in the South, exploring turbulent changes and dramatic personal challenges for individual players in the tree care industry. The follow-up Haven, was released in 2024.

On our walk, we’ll stop to visit significant trees where Edward will read passages from the newly published Haven, as well as share his inspirational journey blending passions for both arboriculture and creative writing. He’ll also answer your questions  about tree risk factors as well as share tried-and-true tree care tips for the optimal health of trees in your yard.
