WOOD­LAND WALKS: THE WOOD­LAND TRUST POD­CAST AVAIL­ABLE ON AP­PLE POD­CASTS

Join ur­ban­ite guide Adam Shore as he am­bles through some of Bri­tain’s most fas­ci­nat­ing forests, dis­cussing their his­tory, wildlife and lo­cal com­mu­nity. This pod­cast takes lis­ten­ers from the newly seeded Heart­wood for­est on the out­skirts of Lon­don to the an­cient bows of Cale­do­nian Pine in West­ern Scot­land. Though his ad-lib nar­ra­tion can feel a lit­tle stilted, Adam meets some won­der­fully knowl­edge­able lo­cal ex­perts along his way, shar­ing both their in­sight and pas­sion for wood­land ecosys­tems. In cel­e­bra­tion of trees and ev­ery­thing they stand for, this gen­tle ex­plo­ration through cli­mate change and re-foresta­tion in Bri­tain con­sid­ers why wood­lands re­main an in­te­gral part of our lives.
