Tree Talks

Tree-Mendous Talks


I provide a varied set of talks on ancient & veteran trees, on their landscapes, their culture, their history and their future. I can tailor a talk to suit your group requirements. The talks can last from as little as 15 minutes if time is a constraint, right up to 2 hours (or more!) if you can cope with this many old trees...and myself!

The talks are usually interactive with questions being able to be asked at any time during the talk. I actively encourage audience participation and sometimes even give out small 'prizes' as a reward for a great question or answer!

The Ancient Tree Hunt and YOUR LOCAL trees...(also included will be discussions and current uppdate on Chalara Ash Die back and other tree Pests & Diseases).


I will sometimes research the area that I am doing the talk in. The Ancient Tree Hunt  project website can usually provide us with great trees in the locality or, if it is practical, I can visit the area prior to the talk and see what gems of old trees there are in the area. 

If I do visit, then I will also try to speak with local folks to gain an insight into the 'Tree Culture' of the area.
