2019 Events:


'TREES IN SUFFOLK: PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE'

a talk by Professor Tom Williamson

Haughley Park Barn, Haughley, IP143JY

Saturday 30 November, 2pm – 5pm

£20 per person to include afternoon tea

The talk will be preceded by an elm tree planting ceremony. As part of SPS’s 90th anniversary celebrations we wanted to give something tangible back to the Suffolk landscape. The elm tree has been a huge loss to the Suffolk countryside so we will be planting three disease resistant elms at Haughley Park. Historic maps of the park have been used to identify locations of lost trees to ensure that the newly planted trees will as far as possible reinstate lost landscape features.

Professor Tom Williamson is a leading landscape historian and landscape archaeologist with wide-ranging interests including investigations of the history of tree populations and disease in England. He teaches courses on landscape history at undergraduate and masters level and we look forward to welcoming him for a return visit to both inform and entertain us.

Please contact the SPS Office Manager on sps@suffolksociety.org or 01787 247179 to book your place.
