Experience an online tour of Britain's forest told through its surviving ancient trees.
As Nature in Art's exhibitions, displays and events have shown, trees have been a longtime inspiration to artists, writers and musicians and are central not just to our physical wellbeing but our emotional wellbeing too. Some of the beautiful trees on site were planted by people with a passion, as a legacy which others can enjoy for hundreds of years.
From wildwood, working woodlands and royal forests, to enclosed deer parks, landscaped manorial estates, modern plantation forestry and rewilding, this talk tells the story of an evolving landscape, shaped by its wildlife, people and their relationship to trees – many of which survive as living links to Britain’s rich and ancient history.
As well as being an ancient tree specialist and nature lover, Julian Hight is a designer, photographer and musician. His talk will also feature his own original music, reflecting on seasons in the forest, with forest sounds recorded through the year weaved into a unique soundtrack.
This event will take place on Zoom.
