Allie Shah's piece on three tree scientists at the U focused mostly on the scientists themselves, so the original art pitch was for a nice portrait. But what makes those guys so fascinating is what they do, not what they look like, so I asked her and fantastic photographer Glen Stubbe to get us a slice of a tree that we could investigate for readers as the lead art. Allie went back to the scientists with a photo proof and did an amazing job compiling with interesting details for this stump's history, and I pieced together an infographic of sorts to give readers an insider look. Bonus: how great is that headline? (thanks to editor Tom Horgen on that one).
