Episode 17 part 2 of the wildlife and photography podcast “Trees, myths legends and the science”. We continue where Episode 16 left off with another five tree species, facts, and recent scientific findings, about how woodlands and the trees in them work together.
Trees and the products we make from them have been part of our world and homes, for tens of thousands of years. We understand how important wood is when we look for furniture to make life comfortable. We burn wood to keep us warm in the cold or cook our food on. But we don’t really have a deep understanding of how a tree and woodland work. We have lived side by side for 3 mega-annum, but it is perhaps only in the last 100 years that we have begun to understand, just what a complex organism a tree is.

We have a dear friend who's husband passed away. In his memory, a grove of trees is being planted here in the highlands. If you would like to help with the planting of new trees you can make a donation here - https://treesforlife.org.uk/groves/g5891/
