Ep.37 Wanted! Mountain Cedars: Dead and Alive (Elizabeth McGreevy-Author, Ecological Planner and Land Steward)
Show Notes

Elizabeth McGreevy talks about local Cedar Trees also known as Ashe Junipers or Blueberry Junipers. While digging into Texas Hill Country politics, history, economics, culture, and ecology, McGreevy tracks down the origins of each tall tale to determine what is true, what is false, and what lies somewhere in between. She also explains why people respected Mountain Cedars before the 1900s, and what events led to the trees' downfall and the landscape we see today. She discusses her more constructive, less emotional approach to Hill Country land management and a perspective that not all Mountain Cedars are bad.

Steve Mallett and Michelle Lewis meet the most interesting people, and discover the places and events that make Dripping Springs, Texas, a Hill Country oasis. Learn why every year, hundreds of people move to this small town just outside of Austin. Every episode features a local resident who’s talent and past will make you want to know more about what draws so many unique people to this historical town.
