Event details

Fri, 30/11/2018 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Join Rob McBride, Archie Miles and David Lovelace for our 2018 Tree-themed autumn lecture!

They will each be giving a short talk, followed by a panel discussion, giving you the chance to ask questions.

The theme fits in with National Tree Week, celebrating our beautiful national trees.  Commonly described as the lungs of the earth, trees are a vital part of the world around us. 

There will also be a raffle & a 'Silent Auction' for a special edition of Archie Miles's wonderful book 'Treescape'!

This is a fundraising event for Herefordshire Wildlife Trust

Archie Miles

Archie has been a professional photographer for over forty years, and began writing about twenty-five years ago. With an abiding passion for the British landscape, a natural progression over the last twenty years has seen him carve a specialist niche in the world of trees. He has written and photographed eight books on the subject and contributed images to many more books and publications. His 2013 monograph on “The British Oak”, went on to a second edition in 2016, the same year that “Treescape” – a special commission from Premier Paper Group was published. His is latest work is “Ash”, a monograph celebrating the ash tree in the British landscape, before most of them are killed by ash dieback. Archie has worked with several of the major tree related organizations, including The Woodland Trust, Tree Council & Forestry Commission. His comprehensive picture library contains over 300,000 tree photographs and related historical archive material. Archie regularly presents illustrated talks for a variety of clients, and has occasionally worked on radio and television. He lives in rural Herefordshire with his partner Jan, “Flossie” the Scottie and “Eric” the cat.

David Lovelace

Ecologist & landscape historian. His particular interest is the work involving the Herefordshire landscape, using digital mapping, aerial photography and LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging).

The digital revolution has made historical sources newly accessible and David Lovelace has fully realised the potential of this revolution. He is excited by the prospect of restoring plantations on ancient woodland sites.
