Spoken – WHY TREES? A talk by UoS Lecturer Camilla Allen – 24/07


Introducing our next talk at Hagglers Corner
 
🌳 Why Trees? 🌳
 
Camilla’s research focuses upon the relationship between people and trees, and focuses upon specific issues, events and places. She has written about the conservation of California’s coast redwoods, the creation of tree cathedrals in Britain, and the planting of commemorative street trees in Sheffield in 1917-1919. In Why Trees? Camilla will share the background and impetus behind her work, where her interest comes from and some of the stories that she has gathered or reconstructed along the way.
Camilla Allen is a lecturer in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield. Her PhD was on the forester and conservationist Richard St Barber Baker, founder of the Men of the Trees.
