Learn more on magic of trees

Have your say

TRACK down the true ‘magic’ of trees by taking part in a forest event.

Expert Patrick Harding has been recruited by the Forestry Commission to tell people about their true powers in an event at Sherwood Pines Forest Park, near Worksop.

On Saturday, July 14, he will teach people how to identify trees and what they have been used for, from warding off witches to flogging miscreants.

“Trees are totally fascinating in their own right, but their place in myth, literature and daily life will all be explored,” said Patrick.

“There’s a lot more to trees than meets the eye.”

The event runs from 11am to 3.30pm and costs £25.
