Learn more about trees from home? Watch and listen to this webinar by Valeria Trouet, which she previously gave at Stadswerk.

Valeria Trouet is a dendrochronologist and wrote the book, ‘What Trees Tell Us’. Using annual rings, she studies past climate and its influence on ecosystems and societies. 

In her book, she shows that dendrochronology has developed into one of the most important tools for studying the complex interactions between forests, people and climate. The common thread is the history of timber use and deforestation, which has allowed us to study the past and contribute to the viability of our planet in the future.

In this webinar, Valerie Trouet will guide you through human history and dendrochonology. Curious? Send an email and you will receive by return the link to watch for yourself at a convenient time!

Two tree scavenger hunts will also take place on Wood Day: at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.. After the scavenger hunt, you can also participate in a harvest afternoon, which starts at 1 p.m.
