Event description
With Pete Herring and Forest for Cornwall as part of National Tree Week

About this event

Discover how Cornwall’s woods and trees have shaped our landscape, from the extensive cover of the Neolithic to today’s sparse cover, and their diverse uses that shaped our heritage.

Cornwall’s woods and trees have shaped our landscape and created an archaeological record of our changing times, from the extensive cover of the Neolithic to today’s sparse cover. With uses as diverse as boat-building, charcoal making, tanning to pew-carving, functional and decorative, the talk will tell the story of woodland in Cornwall. Presented as part of the Forest for Cornwall Tree Week.

Pete Herring is a Cornish landscape historian, with a background working for Cornwall Archaeological Unit, Historic England and Cornwall Council. He is interested in the role woodlands played and play in supporting the Cornish economy and society, extending biodiversity, creating interest and beauty in the historical landscape, and turning the tide against environmental degradation to ensure long term sustainability.
