Britain’s forgotten forests

I recently wrote and presented a short film for the Forgotten Forests project run by Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE).

In the film, entitled Britain’s forgotten forests, I explain that many of the forests in Britain are moribund and I suggest that people are increasingly disconnected from them.  I hope that the film will challenge British people to see the forests on their own doorsteps in a new light.  I was asked to produce the film by RBGE as part of the celebration of the UN’s International Year of Forests.
