Alan Storkey

Trees are crucial for humankind. They also feature in the Bible from Genesis onwards, both in relation to people and important events. Trees symbolise strength, righteousness and wisdom; they clap their hands and shout for joy. This week we’ll be looking at trees in revelation and trees on earth. We’ll reflect on deforestation through climate change, tree planting world-wide, tree engineering systems and, natural history, as well as on leaves, roots, types, lives, wood and fruits.

Alan is an economist, philosopher and artist who has spent much of his lifetime in the company of trees.
