Trees are all around us.
We value them. They enhance our quality of life. Do we just see them as statues swaying in the wind? As a feature of the landscape?
Trees are often quite dynamic, with much happening below the surface. They are very much alive. There is an interaction going on between trees and their surrounding environment. They can detect changes we are unaware of. In a series of visual presentations, tree enthusiast Mark Chester explores some of these dynamics, from buds coming in to leaf to seeds germinating, how trees respond to autumn and the battle for access to the resources contained within the trunk.
Each presentation includes a summary with opportunity to explore further.
