Tree Stories:
Heart, Mind and Soul

Wednesday 19 May 2021 @ 6PM (UK time)

In partnership with the Urban Tree Festival, the Arboricultural Association brings you a free webinar featuring Tracy Chevalier and Jonathan Drori.

Much that is special to us about trees lies where science, culture and folklore meet. From their sofa, Tracy Chevalier and Jonathan Drori explore the world of trees together through their different lenses and read a little from their work. How does a novelist capture trees’ essence and use them as observers and characters in her stories? And how can non-fiction create a meaningful emotional, as well as intellectual link to these amazing organisms? Our relationships with trees range from sacred to profane, and from practical to downright bizarre. But what can their secret lives tell us about the wider world and our place in it?

Knot Tying for Arborists

AA Scotland Branch presents:

Knot Tying for Arborists

22 May 2021

Ever wonder if the bowline really is the best attachment knot or if you are even tying it correctly?

Want to try the superior distel knot, but find it easier to just tie a prussic?

Want to know which stopper really will stay in no matter what?

If you want the answer to these questions, and many more, this is the online event for you.

Sign-up and we will show you how it is done. Have a couple of lengths of rope and cordage at hand, and you can practice in the comfort of your own home.

Just let us know the knot(s) you would most like covering when registering for the event and we will try to get through them all.
