Living With Trees

by Robin Walter for Common Ground

Foreword by Dame Judi Dench

Introduction by Richard Mabey

Living With Trees is a cornucopia of practical information, good examples and new ideas that will inspire, guide and encourage people to reconnect with the trees and woods in their community, so we can all value, celebrate and protect our arboreal neighbours.

‘I’d really like to ask some kindly philanthropist to buy a copy of this book for every household in the UK. Very important, beautifully produced, a bible of Common Ground’s research and ongoing progressive intent as regards wood, forestry, biodiversity and trees as community in this country.’ ~ Max Porter

Words by Robin Walter

Drawings by Juliet Wimhurst

Arbor Vitae - Tree of Life - is a poetic version of Living With Trees with 12 accompanying drawings. The free verse traces our origins in the wildwood, how we lost our home in nature, how trees cling on despite all, and how we might find our way 'back into nature's lap'.
