Stuck in Vermont: Talking Trees With Burlington Arborists 

Episode 664

Published May 5, 2022 at 7:30 a.m. | Updated May 11, 2022 at 10:04 a.m.

It’s spring, and Burlington is awash with green buds as plants and trees emerge after a winter slumber. Burlington Parks, Recreation & Waterfront employs five full-time arborists who take care of 13,000 trees, landscapes and flower beds throughout the Queen City. This season, they are busy planting 200 new trees, pruning and mulching throughout the city.

Eva talks to city arborist Vincent “V.J.” Comai and some of his crew about the importance of these urban trees to Burlingtonians.

Read a behind-the-scenes interview with Eva about the making of this video.

Filming dates: April 11 & 15, 2022

Music: Chris Haugen, “Pure Magic” & “Fractal of Light”
