Justin Yu


Justin is a biology major hailing from the sleepy suburbian town of Stony Point, NY. He graduated (is graduating?) in May 2015, and has taught tree climbing since his sophomore year. Since joining tree staff, he has taught the regular class, been to the California Redwoods twice, and helped gather baby crows for a crow research project. Joining tree staff has been one of the greatest and most exhilarating experiences he has had at Cornell, and one that has helped him mature and grow both in the trees and on the ground!
