The Ash Tree Talk - Friday 14 October
10 Oct 2016
The Esk Valley Trust’s next speaker meeting will be on Friday 14th October, 7.30-9pm. Jim Pratt MBE, a retired Forest Officer with some 30 years’ experience in research, who is also, by inclination, an archaeologist, seeks to draw those two strands together to look at the role of the Ash in past societies (with particular reference to the Roman Army).
The way we have used Ash for thousands of years may have implications for its survival in the current disease outbreak because of the ways in which it has been managed since the Neolithic.
Its future is dire, and people need to be aware of what we will lose when it becomes extinct.
This event is free to all, members and non-members, refreshments provided.
