For the past five years, Adrian Houston has travelled the world photographing trees that hold a special meaning for a diverse cross section of people. "Trees are among the most important organisms on Earth, yet we continue to abuse them. Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth’s land surface; now they cover a mere 6%. In 40 years they could disappear altogether. Such is my concern that I recently decided to give these trees a voice through the art of photography."
Joanna Lumley visited the exhibition.

The yew tree is a native tree which was held sacred by the Druids in pre-Christian times. They observed the tree's qualities of longevity self-regeneration. This is why you find them in churchyards - people already worshiped near yews trees. #FolkloreThursday rootsforfuture photo
