Author of twelve books exploring ways to deepen our relationship with the Earth, working with native plants and trees.
This lively discussion explored how we can work with trees to root deeply into the Earth, and also resource ourselves when confined away from green spaces. The interview also looked at our relationships with different native tree species and at what ecosystems need to ensure trees can be root well. Do land-care choices that support the deep rooting of trees, shrubs and grasses indicate how to manage landscapes for the future?
