Printer-friendly version

The Witness Tree Project (2014-2015) is an intimate look at the human and natural history of a single, 100-year old red oak tree at the Harvard Forest by Bullard Fellow Lynda Mapes. The result of Lynda’s exploration is the book, Witness Tree, which will be published by Bloomsbury Published in 2017. A veteran newspaper journalist, Lynda is also posting regularly to her Witness Tree Blog, to share discoveries as her work on the book unfolds, and bring readers along for the ride in her life as a journalist embedded at the Harvard Forest.
