E142 – Adam Leyrer: Co-Creative Pruning

Adam Leyrer from Co-Creative Pruning is truly car-free and runs his arborist business on a fantastic bike trailer from Seattle’s Haulin’ Colin.  We discuss becoming an arborist, certification, why no cars, the bike & trailer setup, hand powered tree care, partnership with a beekeeper, and Forest Park Conservancy donations.

Brock is a witness to a hit-and-run, and Aaron attends a bike move and a repair clinic (gallery below).  Listeners Marcus & Beth from Chicago are in town and sit in on the taping as well as generously providing our drinks!

Chris in Arcata writes in about improved accomodations for touring cyclists in his town and bike access in the area.  A Facebook post about camping and his site,http://completestreetsadvocate.org.
