Trees are important to all of us. People plant trees to commemorate loved ones, climb them as children (and sometimes as adults) and worry about them being cut down. Collecting Trees investigates the important relationship we have with trees and the impact they have on the world around us. The exhibition will illustrate the different ways people think about trees and how they are valued by different cultures.
We want to collect objects to keep the collections relevant to modern visitors and fit for future use. Tell us what objects related to trees you think the Museum should collect. Come in and add your stories to our collection.
The objects we’ve collected are part of our ‘Trees - collecting to connect’ project demonstrating how important trees are. This exhibition forms part of the ‘Festival of Ecology’ taking place across the UK to celebrate 100 years of the British Ecological Society.
