Do we want a future without trees?
Trees in cities are key for health and well-being, carbon storage, pollution amerilation, slowing rainwater runoff, urban cooling, wildlife and landscape. Since 2015 the developments along Oxford Road corridor has resulted in the removal of 120 trees. New trees have been replanted in other areas, but there is always a loss when a tree is felled.
Artist Phil Barton recorded all these fellings by creating postcards and this Heritage Futures Studio pop up exhibition is the display of his art work and signposting to organisations who are working on the importance of future city trees.
The Oxford Road Murders: the real value of urban trees is taking place in Heritage Futures Studio, which ask how we can shape the future and explore the themes of profusion, diversity, uncertainty and transformation .
Phil Barton will be leading performative walks at the following days and times.
