This anthology is published to coincide with the Urban Tree Festival in May 2021. During the pandemic, we all came to
appreciate the nature that surrounds us. Trees in our parks, streets and front gardens have provided shade, shelter and a changing view. They have boosted our spirits and willingly offered us something to hug! In the Spring of 2021 the Museum of Walking invited people to put into writing their feelings about trees close to you, to submit a poem or a flash writing piece of 250 words (or under).
