As someone who has attended the tree walks in the past, I found this one to be very interesting and engaging, too. The route we were taken on covered some common trees of the area as well as some fascinating uncommon trees. I also enjoyed the various stories that some specific trees had as well as the attention to everyone's questions and the thorough presentations that Vince and Alan made.

This was a wonderful event! I truly enjoyed it! It seemed to have gathered approximately 70-80 people. It was difficult hearing the speakers at times. Perhaps a megaphone or some way of increasing the volume of the voice would have been nice.

It was a beautiful night and Vince was very knowledgable and personable. However, it was more of a Spring Color Tree Stand and Point. Andy and his friend (he wasn't introduced) slowed the walk and process down with the asides and too much information/soapbox moments. I ended up leaving at 615 and we'd only made it to the Hale building. Next time I would have only Vince and maybe have a mobile app or email sent prior to the walk that will have some information included about the trees around campus that we may see on the walk so people are able to refer to that instead of constantly asking "wait, what was that again?" which slowed the tour down. Another suggestion would be to split the groups up, one with Vince and one with Andy and so we aren't this massive blob taking up walkways around campus and people are able to get in closer and hear the expert better.
