    Thanks for joining us. I'm Diane Rehm. What does a tree mean for a city? Author Jill Jonnes says more than you probably realize. It's good for our personal health and it's really good for the health of our planet. In her new book "Urban Forests," Jonnes explores the natural history of trees in America and looks at what cities today are learning about the value of trees in the modern urban environment. Jill Jonnes joins me in the studio to talk about urban forests.

    Well, Diane, it's great to be here in the city of trees, which -- so Washington D.C. has been famous for its trees, really since the mid, late 19th century.
