More private companies and the U.S. Navy assisted the Baltimore Fire Department yesterday in its seventh day of searching for three missing passengers of the capsized Seaport Taxi. A new robotic device produced clear video yesterday of what officials said was the boat's canopy in a location far from where earlier search efforts had found what was then believed to be that piece of the boat, officials said. The video, viewed by Mayor Martin O'Malley, also showed a cell phone, a horn from the boat and the tan and green colors of the Seaport Taxi canopy.

A voracious Asian beetle that's killed millions of ash trees across North America has finally been spotted in Baltimore, posing a costly and difficult challenge for a city that stands to lose more than 200,000 of its most common trees to the exotic pest's onslaught. It could denude blocks lined with ash and cost the city millions of dollars to remove dead or dying trees from public lands, while homeowners may be forced to pay hundreds or even thousands to treat or replace their vulnerable trees.

Do you know your shade?Some shade is total; its dense canopy creates dim spots hospitable to few plants.Partial shade is less exclusive. It lets sunshine leak through thinner layers of leaves or sneak in around the edges for part of the day. More plants are welcome in this dappled environment.And seasonal shade is the protective kind. In summer, leafy trees keep the hottest of afternoon sun off delicate flowers, and, in winter, evergreen trees protect shrubs from scorching morning sun.Shade, of course, is everywhere.

Trees do more than just clear the air and provide shade from the hot summer sun. Though no panacea, they can make cities like Baltimore healthier, a recent study suggests. Using computer modeling to quantify the health benefits of trees in 10 cities, including Baltimore, researchers with the U.S. Forest Service and a private think tank say leafy foliage in urban areas can scrub enough soot out of the air to reduce asthma attacks, emergency room visits and even deaths. "It's the first time we've actually been able to tie it to human health, which is pretty exciting," said David J. Nowak, a federal research forester and lead author of the report.

Q: Long ago I inherited a 19th-century four-poster bed that was made in Germany. It's quite an imposing piece, due to its height and the heavy carving of the posters. The bed was kept in storage for many years, but now that we've moved into a new home with a large bedroom, I'd like to make use of it at last. But I prefer contemporary design with simple lines. Is there a way to integrate this bed into such a scheme?A: You're going to have to stretch your imagination to achieve the desired effect.

Ever since science became a world apart from the arts and culture and daily life, and there were no more da Vincis painting a Mona Lisa one day and carrying out a scientific experiment the next, there have been scientists trying to bridge their isolation from the rest of the world. Such efforts to reach the masses - and to be understood and appreciated by a finicky public - have included Carl Sagan's search for intelligent life among the stars, Stephen Jay Gould's essays and the quirkier, if short-lived, offerings like the Studmuffins of Science calendars.

My trees look ratty. Can I prune now before the leaves come out? Should I put that black gunk on the cuts? I've never done this before. March is an excellent time to prune trees. Without leaves, you have a much better view of what needs to be done. Altogether, don't remove more than one-fourth of the tree canopy in one year. First remove dead limbs. Where two branches rub across each other creating an entry wound for disease, remove one of the branches. Young trees need to be trained to one trunk, unless it's a multi-trunk species such as river birch.

CA needs to think through the proposed elevated tree canopy walk for the Inner Arbor Plan. The reality is that during construction the contractor will clear cut trees for a 25- to 50-foot right-of-way along the walkway route for construction vehicle access and delivery of materials and for underground utilities (electric power, fire plugs water line, sewer line). Then a 25-foot-wide permanent paved or gravel emergency and maintenance access road will need to be built along the cleared right-of-way.

I am extremely happy about the attention the press and citizens of Baltimore are devoting to the city's trees. The Sun's editorial ("Standing up for city trees" Aug 15) accurately highlights the crisis we face in increasing Baltimore's tree canopy while at the same time reconciling large budget cuts and promoting economic development. Upon my arrival this year I was briefed on the city's tree plan with the Grand Prix organization, and I agree it can be a win-win for both parties.

Trees make a city more beautiful, and Baltimore is blessed with an abundance of them — some 2.7 million at last count. That leafy green canopy, which acts as the city's lungs and air conditioner by cooling and cleaning our air and water, doesn't always get the attention it deserves as a critical element of the urban infrastructure. Yet if Baltimore is to remain an attractive place to live and work, its urban forest must be constantly maintained and continually renewed. Baltimore's tree canopy — a measure of the proportion of the city shaded by trees — has been declining in recent decades, largely due to commercial and residential development and the paving over of previously green spaces.

In state-of-the-art homes teeming with technological toys, the notion of a daybed is almost anachronistic. Even the word seems oddly old-fashioned. But despite its quaint label, the daybed has been inching its way back into the design lexicon and retail stores for the last few years. Often deeper than a sofa, or slim as a twin bed with or without sides, it's more a generous settee than a one-sided chaise. Designed for more than sitting, it beckons. Whether you sit, sprawl or flat out nap on it, the daybed is the ultimate piece of cocooning furniture.

To the people who live in Annapolis, there's probably no such thing as too many trees. With almost 40 percent of the city covered by trees, Mayor Ellen O. Moyer and the Annapolis Department of Neighborhood and Environmental Programs are trying to ensure that the lush canopy is maintained - one tree at a time. To that end, city officials are planning several events this month in the run-up to National Arbor Day, April 28, when they will unveil a roof covered with greenery at Back Creek Nature Park on Edgewood Road.

Q: I want to spruce up my bedroom, which contains reproductions of traditional American furniture, including a cherry wood four-poster bed. The fantasy treatments I see in design magazines are all too exotic for my tastes. How can I add some flair without interfering with the room's conservative styling?A: The photo shows some bedroom furniture which I assume is similar to your own. Much can be done to liven up the look of such a setting, keeping in mind that furniture is only one component in the total design of a room.

The image of the big city is typically of a hard, gray and unforgiving landscape. But that soon might change. Concrete is out. The urban forest is in. Baltimore parks and planning officials are to announce plans today to make Baltimore's appearance softer, greener and more pleasant by doubling the city's tree canopy - the total area covered by leaves - in the next 30 years. More trees in Baltimore could mean lower energy costs, higher property values and many environmental perks, including cleaner water and air, according to local, state and federal forestry officials.
