Project Main Details

Detective Dendro Podcast 
The ************************************** is a non-profit organization that trains and certifies arborists. We have an educational but fun podcast we produce to help train arborists about the diagnostic process of trees. This podcast goes up once a month, but recordings can be done in bulk. We are looking for a new voice talent.

The episodes vary from 6 - 13 minutes in length. To listen to a few, please visit this link: *************************************************************************

We are wondering what it would cost per episode for a new voice talent to produce this. We can write and provide the scripts. The voice talent would have to be able to voice a few different characters.

Thank you!

Script Details

Please submit sample and your quote for auditions. 
Dendro: It was a clear, wintry day, perfect for our second annual inspection and root pruning of the large southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) first described in The Case of the Gratified Grandiflora.

Dendro: As Codit unpacked our pouch of chisels, I surveyed the crown. It was in excellent shape- no further dieback since the cleaning it got that first day, despite having girdling roots up to five inches wide cut away from the trunk. Codit tripped on the mulch and dropped the tool bag as he looked around the corner.

Codit: “Hey, it’s Electra Cline; she’s talking to a lady in a black coat and a guy with a little magnolia next to the street and under the wires.”

Dendro: It was our client, Ms. DuBois, examining the leaves as Electra untied the branches. I gave her a wave as Codit marched up to Electra.

Codit: “Hey, Electra, are you here to move the magnolia away from the wires? Someone planted the right tree in the wrong place, huh?”

Electra: “No way, Codit. This is the cultivar ‘Little Gem’; it tops out at 20 feet. Ashley Green in the Urban Forestry Department approved it. The species grandiflora gets pretty big, but we deal with them when we have to because they tolerate reduction pruning better than the trees down the street.” She pointed to a long row of red maples recently planted under the wires. “Those poor things will need pruning every few years, many hours of work and hundreds of cuts over their lifetime. All pruning is wounding and worse yet, they are prone to decay.”

Dendro: “Pest pressure is also high because there are so many of that one species,” I added. I looked to see whether Codit was paying attention. He was back in the DuBois yard, pruners in hand, looking at a vine growing on a pine tree.

Dendro: “Codit, what are you doing?”

Codit dropped the hand pruners.

Codit: “Just looking, Dendro,”

Dendro: Codit protested, his cheeks as red as the holly berries on the lapel of Ms. DuBois’s coat as she and Electra approached.

Codit: “I know some vines strangle trees, but since my new book says that arboriculture is the integrated management of landscape trees, shrubs- like those waxmyrtles we worked on-, and vines, I was checking to see if it was a weed.”

Electra: “No cut without a reason; you got it. Vines can be vile or valuable, according to the observer’s view. That is Campsis radicans, trumpetcreeper, and the next tree has Parthenocissus quinquefolia, Virginia creeper. They are clinging vines, not twiners like Wisteria floribunda and Lonicera japonica, which strangle the trees that support them.”

Ms. DuBois: “I’m so glad you know that, young lady. Mr. Dendro included the vines in his original landscape inventory. He knows that my favorite color is red. The first vine has red flowers and the second has red leaves. I also love the way they form a natural area as they creep along the ground.”

Dendro: Codit stashed the hand pruners back in his holster as he went back to the front yard. After we finished pruning and fertilizing the roots, I stepped into the foyer to give her the invoice. Idly rubbing the newly polished leaves on her ficus plant while she wrote the check, I saw a potbellied brass Buddha smiling up at me from his seat at the base of the tree. I smiled back.
