Plantlife Fall into Nature Webinar: The World Tree with Lisa Schneidau

Date: Thursday 13 October 2022

Thursday 13th October 2022 from 6:30pm – 7:45pm BST: The world tree. In a world of magic and miracles, Yggdrasil the ash tree holds all of creation in its roots and branches. Odin the Allfather hangs upside down from the great tree, waiting for wisdom to come. What happens when the ash tree falls sick? Ash is one of our commonest trees, bringing many gifts: timber, fuel, tools, inspiration and protection. Now ash dieback is on the march through our countryside and is a problem in our temperate rainforest, where ash trees provide a home for many important lichens. Lisa Schneidau tells The World Tree: a storytelling dedicated to our beloved ash trees, past, present and future. Here’s a tangle of Norse myth, Irish legend and English folktale, where you can hear the latest about our tree pandemic, learn some juicy reptilian insults and discover what happened after the world really did end.
