About the Event
Do you know you alder from your elder and your beech from your birch?
If not this walk is perfect for you!
We'll take an in depth look at around 15 UK tree species, including how to identify them, why they are here, and how they grow. We'll talk about what these trees were traditionally used for, and still are today for crafts, furniture, food, medicine, and fire.
You'll get hands on experience and personal expertise that you won't get from books.
