Tributes to Trees

Launched on Valentine’s Day, Tributes to Trees is a request for you to share stories, poems, letters or memories with us to show gratitude to the trees which sustain us.

Maybe it’s that tree you used to climb, taking you to a different place literally and metaphorically? 

Maybe it’s those trees that have been given a second life to provide the sensory and tactile pleasures of a cricket bat, a wooden spoon, or a piece of furniture?

Carol Ann Duffy, the poet laureate, shares her Tribute to Trees with a poem created for our centenary. FOREST is a celebration of the endurance and life-cycle of the forest, reminding us of our place in the natural world and how trees sustain life on earth.
