Through their travels, either through nature’s winds or human trade routes, trees connect us to our past. Yet few of us think of a mango tree thousands of kilometers away from our own mango tree as part of a web of intersecting memories and a way of life that now might be under threat.
As climate change increasingly dominates public debate, we invite you to explore personal stories that people from around the world have recorded on their phones about a tree in their garden or neighborhood. These stories ultimately map the branches of shared heritage around different tree types—and concerns for their sustainability in the future.
We hope within Tree Routed’s stories—of love, family, war, diaspora, personal battle—you also discover how you are connected to others who consider the same trees as their heritage, even if far, far away.
