Meeting with Remarkable Trees Experience

Meetings With Remarkable Trees

Trees, have always inspired poets, painters, dreamers, botanists and naturalists. It ‘s easy to see why. Trees live longer than us and grow bigger than any other creature. They too, have been witness to centuries of history, war, plague, indifference and brutal neglect. Today, as society becomes more urban, space more limited, we need to protect our trees, plant more trees and we need to realise how important trees are in helping us breathe clean air and how vital they are in protecting our dwindling biodiversity.

Our forebears the Celts, worshipped our native trees. They classified them into ranks. The first being the Nobles, followed by the Commoners, Lower Divisions of the Wood and Bushes of the Wood. But the Celts were not the only ones to love trees. Over the centuries travellers brought back seedlings, fruits and small saplings and throughout Great Britain and Ireland the offspring of these great trees, are still flourishing. Wonderful Walnuts, Gingos, the smooth grey bark of ancient Beeches continue to inspire us by their strange histories, longevity and the ability to make us feel happy and peaceful when we walk among beautiful trees in remarkable natural settings.

The Japanese have long recognised the physical and mental well being of Forest Bathing -among beautiful trees. The sounds of the forest, the scent of pines, the light playing through the trees, bird song, moss covered, old tree stumps. All of these sights and sounds give us a sense of well -being and indeed comfort.

On our experience, Meetings with Remarkable Trees we will look at the age of our trees, delve a little into the history of each individual tree specimen. We will look at the roots of trees and discuss the growing requirements of broadleaf and coniferous trees. We will talk about the mysterious mycelium lying beneath the roots of trees and which has a symbiotic relationship with our trees. On our experience, Meetings with Remarkable Trees we will provide evidence of our deep, cultural need for trees and woods and to inspire people to plant trees and inspire people to take care of them.

These old trees have stories to tell. Stories of our forebears the Celts.  Stories of mystery, folklore, tradition and history. The Chieftain trees as Thomas Gray said “dreaming out their old stories to the wind” . Experience these stories on our Meetings with Remarkable Trees
