Whispers from the Wood 6: Ep 6: If Trees Could Talk…

In this week's episode of our exclusive video series, James takes you to the Welsh/English border to hear the story of one of his ancient trees, The Oak at the Gate of the Dead. James also discusses how veteran trees extend their lives by reshape themselves over many years, a process called "retrenchment".

Ancient trees really do have stories to tell and we hope it will inspire you to go ancient tree hunting for yourself.
