About the Event
Join us at the Heritage Centre for this fascinating and important talk by David Taylor-Gooby from the Woodland Trust.
David will discuss the challenges of global warming and why trees are important as part of the response to this.
Find out why the UK does not have as many trees as other comparable countries, for example, there are many areas where woods have disappeared, thanks to human and animal activity - such as the Lakes, Orkneys and Dartmoor. David will explain why this is important and a threat to biodiversity, as well as climate change, along with the dangers of greenwashing and why it's imperative to care and look after our nation's trees.
David will give examples of supposed initiatives to do carbon offsetting that often have not worked. He will also talk about why it is important to protect ancient woodlands and the importance of biodiversity.
You can also find out what we can all do ourselves and why organisations like the Woodland Trust have an important lobbying role.
Booking essential, tickets £12.50 including glass of wine and platter of nibbles.
There will also be the opportunity to ask questions and enquire about membership of the Woodland Trust at the end of the talk.
