Trees have never been so popular and so valued. I have worked with them for more than twenty years, and in the months ahead, I’ll be sharing my own knowledge of tree management, key tips and thoughts. There will be regular contributions from our resident plant health specialist Dr. Glynn Percival, The View from Kew, where Kevin Martin manages the collection of more than 14,000 trees, and others. Each month, there will be an interview, we’ll get to understand more about the trees around us and explore places to visit.

Editor's Welcome

Welcome to the June edition.  Colour seems to be a theme this month, with the blossom display in many orchards as apples and pears prepare to set their fruit.

Volunteer tree warden Sally Webster shares some photos from the orchard at Putney in Herefordshire, where apple growing dates back to the 1870s. Many woodlands have provided a rich display of bluebells, and Gough’s Coppice in Shropshire is no different, as I found out when I visited.

Our website has been updated, as we introduce the subscription model. This gives added benefits of access to ALL articles from the launch edition in summer 2021 to today, PLUS access to videos and audio material, supplementing the written articles.

Do take a look at the new media on the website, including a 360o look at a fantastic Bluebell Wood.
