Jonathan Drori: Around the World in 80 Trees

From India’s sacred banyan to the fragrant cedar of Lebanon, trees offer us sanctuary, inspiration and companionship – not to mention sustenance and raw materials – and forests have surprising parallels with human communities. In this fascinating illustrated talk, Jonathan Drori, author and trustee of the Eden Project in Cornwall, and former board member of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, uses plant science to illuminate how trees play a role in every part of our lives, from the romantic to the regrettable, and how they are capable of the most bizarre antics. An unmissable event for nature lovers.
