Is all wood created equal? According to George Pocock, the visionary boat-builder at the heart of this year's One Read book, "The Boys in the Boat," it certainly is not! Why does cedar make a good rowing shell, maple a fine chopping block and oak a tight barrel? And, what do trees have to do with road rage, hospitals and yoga? Come find out about the kinds of wood we grow here in the Show-me state, its varied uses and some of the benefits that trees provide. You'll come away with all sorts of tree trivia to tickle your mind and amaze your friends. Presented by Ann Koenig, an urban forester for the Missouri Department of Conservation.
