About the Exhibition
The Remarkable World of Trees exhibition will be held at St Albans Museum and Gallery – in the Town Hall in St Peter’s Street, St Albans. Running from September 17th 2021 – 23rd January 2022, it will be the culmination of many years of work and planning by Kate Bretherton. Kate has found herself fascinated by trees for many years and is the author of “The Remarkable Trees of St Albans” and the “Hello Trees” series of books.
Why ‘The Remarkable World of Trees?’
Quite simply, trees are absolutely amazing! Their impact and importance in the world should never be underestimated and we hope that the exhibition will inspire everyone who visits to become more aware of how vital trees are.
What to expect
Things to play with and textures to explore.
Games and interactive exhibits for little hands (and big one!)
Something for everyone
The exhibition brings together so many of remarkable aspects of trees – facts about them, art inspired by them, music about them, child friendly hands on toys made from them… and so much more
A whole series of events that support the exhibition – with walks, talks and activities.
Phenomenal photography – from our competition winners in the calendar to local trees of interest
We’re so pleased that the exhibition is already creating a legacy that will last long into the future
The Wilderhood Watch team encourage us to plant our own hedge! See the video above to find out more – and make sure you visit the hedge section of the exhibition to discover how important hedges are.
Tree Council art
The fantastic art created by the pupils at Sauncey Wood school will be turned into a postcard that will be used by the Tree Council – wonderful for the young artists and the exhibition!

We hope to inspire you with…
Trees for our planet
We know trees are crucial for our survival – but why are they so important? What parts of the trees play which roles and what can we do to support sustainability?
Trees for your wellbeing
The pandemic has taught us the wonder of going for a local walk – we’ll help you learn what trees you’re seeing! The benefits of being amongst trees to both your mind and body will be explained for children and adults.
Trees as your career
Working with trees is a career option for anyone – often bringing a mix of outside working, traditional and modern skills and a great sense of achievement.
