Archive of the Trees Book

Following her time as Artist in Residence at Fineshade Wood, Edwina fitzPatrick and Fermynwoods Contemporary Art have released Archive of the Trees: A Woodland Guide.

At the beginning of her residency, Edwina asked Fineshade visitors, residents and Forestry Commission workers whether climate change should be addressed culturally or scientifically. In response to their unanimous answer of “both”, the Archive of the Trees book continues to combine scientific data with cultural anecdotal information, taking a local approach to a complex global phenomenon.

Copies of the new publication are now available to purchase through our website for £12 (inc P&P).

The Archive of the Trees was part of The Forest is the Museum – Fermynwoods Contemporary Art’s programme of artists in residence at Fineshade Wood, taking place between 2018 and 2020.
