Hey, I'm Andrew. I really like plants - especially trees. I have an environmental science degree from Chestnut Hill College, and a biology master's degree from Lehigh University. I am currently working as a utility Arborist in the Greater Philadelphia area. I run a non-profit with the goal of planting trees within my community. -

I made a video about the Spotted Lanternfly, a relatively new invasive insect in the United States that is causing many problems in Pennsylvania. Check it out here!

I created a dichotomous key and video guide for North American Sumacs (Rhus spp.).

I also made a video about the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive insect that has killed tens of millions of North American Ash trees. Check that out here!

I make educational nature and science videos on TikTok . Here, I hope show younger generations the beauty of nature and science.
Here are a few of my TikToks:
Saving a Spruce tree from invasive Oriental Bittersweet
Why Mulching your trees is super important!

I've made a few other biology-related videos:
