Demonstration / Talk / Lecture


As the oldest living inhabitants on the planet, trees have played a major part in the way we live today, providing both the daily oxygen we breathe and the foundation of our nation's heritage. Every native tree in Britain tells a different story. This talk is a fascinating and lavishly illustrated presentation following the BBC series, The Trees That Made Britain. Through detailed portraits of individual tree species - Oak, Yew, Alder, Apple Scots Pine, and Ash - Tony Kirkham of Kew Gardens reveals the trees that influenced the culture, myths and fabric of the nation, packed with surprising facts.
