Une compilation des émissions de France Culture en 2017, l’année des arbres! 

...plusieurs heures d’écoutes fascinantes autour des découvertes récentes de nos collocs les arbres, enjoy!! (en Français only, sorry)

Par exemple l'émission "Terre à terre" invite Enrst Zürcher, qui évoque entre autre le rôle des odeurs des arbres dans notre rapport au monde et cite :

"Il s'est réveillé aux odeurs, en étant couché sur une pile de boit qui chauffait au soleil"(Patrick Suskin, Le Parfum)

 

Los Angeles Garden Projects now in the pipe!

During my last visit to LA, I started a very exciting project in a lovely garden, at the previous Queen's recording studio. Here's a first preview picture of the work in progress art, very partially shown here. I will return in a few months to  expand the design, so if anybody is interested with a similar onsite custom made design, please get in touch!

Many examples of the possible vibes can be found in the ‘Atelier’ and ‘Street’ photo galleries. For the existing potted models available to acquire (europe only), please check the Showroom page.

2017 : The Great Plane Trees Washout

Past year's specific weather conditions have conducted all Plane Trees (Platanes) through the whole France to shed their skin. Such conditions would appear once every ten years, just pay attention to those you cross in the street, it is pretty obvious! Fully exfoliated, they'll look gorgeous next springtime :p

" Pour ceux qui aiment la nature, un film à voir absolument "
Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Découvrez le film phénomène "L'Intelligence des Arbres" suivi d'un débat avec des spécialistes, dans le cadre des "Dimanches de la Connaissance" au Club de l'Etoile.

Ce documentaire sur la communication entre les arbres change notre regard sur le vivant et les forêts.
Avec Peter Wohlleben l'auteur du bestseller "La Vie Secrète des Arbres" (vendu à plus d'1 million d'exemplaires) & Suzanne Simard, écologiste forestière.
Tout sur le film sur Jupiter-Films.com : http://www.jupiter-films.com/film-intelligence-des-arbres-l-75.php
 

François Bouteau, représentant français de la fameuse 'Society for Plant signaling and Behaviors' viendra animer le débat passionnant qui s'en suivra !

The Lützowplaze park case...

Two years ago, we picnicked along with a recently revealed tree model, and made offerings to celebrate the Summer solstice (this tree was a the corner of the park, which made him quite 'urban', as Ghostwood is an urban project before anything - the park gardener left me work for close to a week as he did appreciate the stuff).

 

...I asked my good friend Fergus (credited for these photos) to return there and shoot some updated pictures, to see how things have evolved after 8 seasons of quite 'continental weather', and evaluate a need for another update/layer...  And, two years after, what a surprise !! civilization has moved even further and Berlin starts constructions on the same area. Of course, trees have been, or in the process of being removed, but it seems only one has been spared : this tree friend!

of course, the design needs a little improvement, what I will do shortly to expand his possible lifespan, but it's still quite nice, IMHO,, with nice time polish, check this out ! :

Joining the Plant Intelligence Studies Community

Stefano Mancuso is the first 'Plant NeuroPhysicist', and a founding member of 'The Society of Plant Signaling and Behavior', which has been gathering for more than 10 years molecular geneticists, biochemists, electrophysiologists, physiological ecologists, community ecologists, mathematical modelers, plant designers, and even philosophers.

Ghostwood is proud to have joined this community, as an observer of course, but able to relay the upcoming breakthroughs in this fascinating domain.
