Standing sentry down every street, alone on a plain or paddock, or crowding out the sun and sky. What can trees tell us about the world, the future, and ourselves? In collaboration with Australian Poetry and Digital Writers Festival, three Australian poets create a new work of poetry responding to the trees unique to the landscape surrounding them. Accompanied by creative audio and visual renderings of the final pieces.

View the works and listen to the poems 

Poets include: Bert Spinks, Mindy Gill and Steven (SJ) Finch. Britta Jorgensen is the producer.
