Black poplar - The Tree That Lost Its Forest

The Laois/Offaly Branch are hosting this event.

Daniel Buckley joins us to offer his insights into this species and its conservation. Often associated with the paintings by the artist John Constable, the black poplar is an enigmatic if relatively unknown tree in Ireland with a controversial history and uncertain future. This talk introduces the audience to the biology and ecology of black poplar, the threats facing this species, current knowledge gaps and what is needed to save it. The meeting point is at the old AIB Bank, main street, Abbeyleix, Co. Laois.
