For the Love of Trees

For the Love of Trees – a talk with Richard Tenant-Eyles of the Woodland Trust

FRIDAY | 9:15 – 10:00 | MIND

This year, in my role as a Volunteer Speaker at The Woodland Trust, I will be delivering a ‘For the Love of Trees’ talk focusing on several tree related themes: why people need trees and what they do for us, the state of our woods today and in the past, and what we can do to help woods and trees in the future. I’m also going to discuss some of the latest understandings about the relationship between trees and fungal networks and the wood wide web – which is quite frankly mind blowing . If there is time we may also delve into some case studies around rewilding. This will be followed by the festival tree planting ceremony, so grab a coffee and come to both.
