Peterborough - William Logan signs and discusses "Sproutlands: Tending The Endless Gifts Of Trees"

WILLIAM LOGAN signing and discussing  SPROUTLANDS: TENDING THE ENDLESS GIFTS OF TREES Once, farmers knew how to make a living hedge and fed their flocks on tree-branch hay. Rural people knew how to prune hazel to foster abundance: both of edible nuts, and of straight, strong, flexible rods for bridges, walls, and baskets. Townspeople cut their beeches to make charcoal to fuel ironworks. Shipwrights shaped oaks to make hulls. No place could prosper without its inhabitants knowing how to cut their trees so they would sprout again. SPROUT LANDS is seasoned arborist William Bryant Logan’s account of the lost traditions that sustained human life for ten millennia.
