ANHSO talk "Off With Their Heads!" by Ian Gourlay - 5th July

ANHSO's next event will be a talk by wood anatomist Ian Gourlay on 5th July on Oxford's trees, entitled "Off with their heads!".

Why does Oxford have so many problems with city trees, what should we plant, and why perhaps should we take a 'leaf' from the French?  Usingexamples of tree paintings in Paris Ian Gourlay will discuss Oxford's trees, present and future.

He is a former wood anatomist at the Department of Forestry (now Plant Sciences) and is involved with The Forest of Oxford group, The Oxford Tree Club, the Wychwood Project, Oxford Organics group and Oxfordshire Garden's Trust.

The talk will be held in The Old School Room, in the grounds of St Peter's Church, First Turn, Wolvercote, OX2 8AQ. First Turn is served by the Oxford Bus Company number 6 bus which runs every 20 minutes. 

Lectures are at 7.45 pm on Tuesdays. (At ordinary lectures, admission is £2 for non-members, members free.)
