About the Event

It is easy to take trees for granted, many can live for hundreds of years, if allowed to. At least 2 species have been around for millions of years. How often do we stop to think about all the human history that has passed during the lifetime of such a tree? Have you ever thought about trees being territorial or communicating with each other? We often hear about the importance of the Tropical Rain Forests, usually in the same sentence as climate change or removing carbon from the atmosphere, but all trees are important for many other reasons. So much life depends on trees for food and shelter, including of course us, and we use trees for many other things, including musical instruments. Then of course there is the beauty of new growth, autumn leaves and flowers. 

To keep everyone safe this will be a webinar event, we are working to get subtitles available those of you who find hearing difficult. If you have a smartphone there is a free app called "Live Transcribe" which will convert the speech into text for you to make it easier to follow. 

Please RSVP to the event so that we can send you all the information you need to be able to join us on the night. If you are a nervous technology user and would like some help please contact Helen through the Contact page and she will arrange to come to show you what to do whilst maintaining social distancing. Thanks!
