Harriet writes: “It’s an anthology of diverse, vibrant and considered reflections, ideas and styles that bear witness to the vitality of trees in our daily existence. […]
But the anthology is more than a sylvan walk. It stems from an urgent necessity to engage with and protect our environment, and this conversation lies at its heart. In the ways of artistry, this necessity is expressed by these poems and those wisdoms they embody, and with which we want to engage via our own, personal landscapes, represented not least by the enduring resilience of the tree, a living thing that can both predate and outlast us all.”
Simon Armitage, whose poems ‘Reader, allow’ and ‘On the raw shoulder’ are published in The Tree Line, recently signed the Charter for Trees while appearing at the Hay Festival.
