You’ve got a patch of parkland that needs new trees. You’ve got the tools to plant trees — 40 of them. Ready … set … GO!

Whew, good work!

In real life, planting those 40 trees in Louisville’s Seneca Park — the last park Frederick Law Olmsted designed for the city — took about three hours. And it’ll take a lot longer than that for the trees to grow and thrive. But once they do, everyone in Louisville will be speedier — or at least smarter, which is just as good.
