Biography

My original character is Mike O'Ryza, Arborsleuth, and I also write as Detective Dendro. Mike and DD solve the most complex tree cases every time, but they never get the girl. Cases and topics available for presentation range from basic diagnostics to the gnarliest questions of tree law, forensic science, and the most advanced arboriculture imaginable.

If you tell me about your audience and event, I can send some outlines that might fit your needs. Will travel, reasonable rates.

I'm an arborist, author and consultant, with 46 years' experience providing better tree care. My goals are to improve my understanding and my work and to provide valuable services to trees and their owners. I report stories about trees and tree care and arborists around the world. I'm not the Lorax, but I do try to speak for the trees.
