Hunnewell Building

Ever wonder about the inside of a tree or how a tree functions? Or, what a single tree can tell us about climate? Reporter Lynda Mapes spent a year embedded with scientists at the Harvard Forest to explore a single, 100-year old oak, from the symbiotic relationships in and around its roots and branches to the daily and seasonal changes of the canopy. Hear Lynda speak about her experience studying a rooted tree for a year and how this specimen is one of many in the remarkable, six-state recovery of forests that is underway on former farmland throughout New England. Her book, Witness Tree, will be available for purchase and signing.
