Part of the Treeline artist commissioning program funded by Arts Council England.

The tree line, like lake boundaries, appears well-defined from a distance, but upon sufficiently close inspection it is a gradual transition. Trees grow shorter towards the inhospitable climate until they simply stop growing.

The main point of Treeline is to ask can artists add to a shift in society's culture to prevent catastrophic global climate change, is the ability of aesthetics to 'move' a tool we can adapt in this way, and how can artists work with academics to articulate scientific knowledge into social belief.

National Tree Week is a great chance for communities to do something positive for their local treescape. Each year, The Tree Council's member organisations such as voluntary bodies and local authorities, up to 200 schools and community groups, our 8,000 Tree Wardens and many others, support the initiative by setting up fun, worthwhile and accessible events, inspiring upward of a quarter of a million people to get their hands dirty and together plant around a million trees.
