Meetings With Trees: Autumn Glory
📅 Tuesday 2 October 2018
The Yorkshire Arboretum
This is the final meeting in a series of seven tours, each of which explores a particular aspect of the life of trees.

The Arboretum is always busy in October because people love the autumn colour of trees. On this tour we'll look at the differences in colour of different trees at this time of year, and at the overall effect of their contributions to the landscape.

We'll meet in the cafe at 10:30am and then set out to walk at 11am. This event is free but normal admission applies. For more information please visit: www.yorkshirearboretum.org

Listening To Trees
📅 27 October - 4 November 2018
The Yorkshire Arboretum
Have you ever wondered what a tree sounds like inside? Come and hear the inner workings of a tree through the wonders of modern technology. Acoustics can tell us much about a tree’s health – from the stealthy munching of a beetle grub to a weak branch union, but also provide an insight into the dynamic nature of wood as it flexes in the wind.

Dave Chesmore will explain all on Sunday 28 October, or you can join us as we listen and record sounds at other trees this week. A chorus of tree sounds will be available to listen to all week.

During opening hours. Suitable for all
Normal admission applies
