Historian Jared Farmer's book "Trees in Paradise" tells the story of California through four main characters: the majestic redwood, the glamorous palm, the fragrant eucalyptus, and the colorful citrus tree. Farmer joins us in the studio to discuss what the state's trees can tell us about its culture and history.
