A History of Trees

A History of Trees
 
  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

History journalist and photographer Simon Wills reveals the little-known stories about our most well-known trees from his new book. Where did the London plane come from, and why is it everywhere in the capital? Which king’s crown was lost, and found in a hawthorn? Find out how one of the UK’s most common garden trees was created by a cavalry officer who served Napoleon, and why Europe’s most popular pear is called the conference. Trees impress us because of their size, majesty, beauty and endurance, but they also have a fascinating history. Intrigued? Come along and find out more.
