Folk singer and environmentalist Colum Sands lives close to an ancient oak tree in Rostrevor which became known as the ‘Invisible tree’ after it was omitted from an impact assessment linked to a proposed development in the area.
The tree has inspired Colum to explore our relationship with trees, and ask why have so few. It’s thought that Northern Ireland has less than 8% tree coverage, among the lowest in Europe – so what is being done about it?
Colum speaks to the Woodland Trust about their ambitious tree planting projects which could transform our landscape, and the RSPB explain why trees and hedgerows are so vital for our environment and ecology. Former planner Dean Blackwood explains the current legislation regarding trees, and environmental law expert Dr Ciara Brennan looks at what she feels needs to change to offer trees better protection.
DAERA Minister Edwin Poots discusses his pledge to plant 18 million trees in the next 10 years, and gives his view on whether existing legislation offers sufficient protection to our forests and trees.

Throughout, we hear music – from Colum himself, including a song penned with ink made from the ‘invisible tree’, and a beautiful, haunting version of the old ballad ‘Bonny Portmore’ from Mary Dillon recorded specially for this programme.

yes, Freddy, I made a mistake re which weekend the clocks change! It wouldn't have affected the time of yesterday's broadcast though.
I think Radio Ulster programmes are archived for a week at least. Should i make the effort to listed online as I didn't listen to the programme yesterday?

Anyone here who listened to the programme, what did you think of it?

Well Felipa, it's a nice programme, mainly about trees.
The musical content is minimal.

It looks as if this one is archived indefinitely
'17 Oct 2020 Available for over a year'
according to the webpage.
