I read an amazing book The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. It is about the forest as a social network and it is fascinating stuff.

This week is National Tree Week with, despite Covid-19 restrictions, some tree planting going on. Click here for their calendar of events.

The Tree Council site is very interesting, including some advice about how to protect trees and plans. For instance I never knew I should clean my boots before and after going out and about in woodlands and parks, to help limit the spread of potentially devastating plant diseases.

I hate cleaning boots. I think I will have to train my daughter!
