Sixty-five years ago, American missiles flew over Whistling Straits. Not the golf kind — nothing like what Dustin Johnson will launch during the Ryder Cup next week. We’re talking the military kind, because Whistling Straits was not Whistling Straits in the late ’50s. Nowhere close. The tract of land was known as Camp Haven, an antiaircraft training ground for the United States Army. Team U.S.A.’s uniforms looked quite a bit different back then.

Q: Tell me about your background. I read that your early connection with natural spaces led you to the work you are doing now. A: I grew up in Beverley, on the southwest side of Chicago. It’s a neighborhood known for it beautiful trees and home gardens, and my street had a lot of both.

I realize now that he probably had his reasons, but back then, I was so hurt by this, and I remember saying to one of my friends that we should have a funeral for this tree.

Mine started last summer, when the 70-foot black walnut tree in my backyard had to come down. Our behemoth had been threatening the neighborhood long before I moved in two years earlier. I’d spend every storm holding my breath and eyeing the window as she creaked and moaned, a ghastly noise more akin to a wooden tall ship than a tree.
