Thanks to Carrie Healy of New England Public Radio who put up this great story today on New England Public Radio. She made the trip out to the Harvard Forest to interview me under the big oak and talk about the Witness Tree project. I love the sounds of us walking up to the tree and the spring birds calling as we talked!
Full of laughter and joy, she was a reporter who clearly got the unique setting of the Harvard Forest and the message of the book. What a pleasure to spend that time together.

The Boston Sunday Globe magazine this Sunday April 30 also will have cover story about the Witness Tree. That’s a mighty warm welcome as we pack up and get ready to come to Petersham May 2 for the launch for Witness Tree at the Harvard Forest at the Fisher Museum at 7 pm. There will be a special presentation at the Six Bridges Gallery in Maynard on Thursday May 4.The Evening of Trees show from 7 to 9 pm features senior ecologist Neil Peterson from the Harvard Forest, photographs by Brent Mathison and I’ll read from Witness Tree and sign books. The week will top off with a launch at party at the Arnold Arboretum at 6 pm.
All events are free and open to the public. East coast friends hope to see you there!

A little DIY (Do It Yourself) press this Sunday in the Pacific Magazine of the Seattle Times. How lovely to see the tree in newspaper boxes all over Seattle. I wrote this piece using photographs from my time at the Harvard Forest and recounted my time climbing the tree. Was lovely to relive it all over again!
Thanks to Bellamy Pailthorp at Seattle’s public radio KNKX for this terrific radio interview, recorded under one of Seattle’s most glorious red oaks…we call this tree The Queen for every good reason.
And thanks to Joel Connelly for this great review in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Looking forward to the book launch tonight at the Seattle Public Library, and headed east soon for the celebrations at the Harvard Forest 7 pm May 2 and Arnold Arboretum at 6 pm May 5. Hope to see you there!
