Pennsylvania State Coordinator, Scott Wade
From being one of the original 13 colonies and the site of the Battle of Gettysburg to becoming an industrial powerhouse in the 20th century, Pennsylvania has played a key role in shaping America’s story. It’s no wonder that Scott Wade enjoys studying genealogy and the history of the commonwealth.

As a stay-at-home dad and a certified arborist, he finds time to balance his family life with working part time at Longwood Gardens and running Pennsylvania’s Champion Tree Program. Scott has been the state coordinator of the program since 2006 and works diligently in recognizing the state’s biggest and culturally significant trees.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
