The Cost of Relentless Growth – Lessons from 1920s LA

Jared Farmer
Author, Trees in Paradise: A California Paradise

Building a city and keeping up with relentless growth requires a tremendous amount of resources – steel, concrete, and wood – and along with that growth comes an undeniable impact on the environment, both close to home and in far away lands where resources are extracted. The book, Trees in Paradise by Jared Farmer, explores the roots of California’s history with the natural landscape, through the lens of four trees, and gives us a new perspective of how this next great city building initiative can take lessons from history to ‘branch out’ into a more sustainable future.
