  1. I live near a place called Aston on Clun, in the UK. Strangely, the village also has an Arbor day celebration. Apparently it was a regular festival 300 years ago, but now there is just the one in the UK. Don’t know if it’s the same, but it involves a tree..

  2. What a super idea for a tour! Nowadays I’m finding more and more people who have little appreciation for urban trees – complaining about roots damaging the sidewalks, the work in picking up after them, or the potential “danger” from falling branches. After having gorgeous old trees cut down by neighbors on two occasions for reasons like these I’ve become so sensitive I leap out of bed in the morning thinking that any power tool is the sound of a saw bringing down another tree. I’m going to think about the possibilities of doing a tour like this in my area. Trees need our support!
