Tree Talk !

Rob Mcbride, an ex-software engineer based in Shropshire, is an acknowledged expert on connecting trees and people. Often, the cultural heritage of many trees is ‘hidden’; tucked away in people’s memories, never really shared or talked of and rarely written about. Rob aims to change all this and has been researching these arboreal connections for over 13 years. Appearing on many TV and radio programmes he tries to ‘normalise’ our relationships with special trees. In recent years he has been involved with the European Tree of the Year contest, hosting the awards ceremony in the EU Parliament in Brussels, on one occasion. He has recently been asked by the organisers of this contest to be the official ambassador for #TreesInNeed which aims to highlight / campaign for ‘special’ trees under threat right across the UK and Europe. He is also a walk leader, writer, lecturer, photographer and campaigner / ambassador, for the protection of veteran, heritage and ancient trees. Follow Rob on Twitter @thetreehunter
