Arbor Vitae

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'.
