The Amazing World of Trees exhibition: The Bath Society of Botanical Artists has sought to capture the strong forms and delicate beauty of trees in this exhibition. Trees play an essential role in helping the balance of the world’s ecosystems. They are also a vital component of the British landscape and provide habitats for animals, birds, insects, and plants. Trees give us shade and protection, fuel, fruit and nuts for food and timber for construction. The artists have observed the amazing diversity of trees in great detail to portray compositions that are both scientifically accurate and visually pleasing.

A talk, My Life with Trees and Theirs with Me by Alan Power, the garden and estate manager for Stourhead, forms part of the exhibition. The talk, also at BRLSI, is on Friday 13 October at 7.30pm. Tickets available through Bath Box Office, visit: bathboxoffice.org.uk.
