Get Involved: The Story of Liverpool City Region Through Its Trees

We are inviting the public to create a history of Liverpool through its trees, using personal stories and photography. This will be The Story of Liverpool City Region Through Its Trees.

Trees are the perfect vehicle through which to tell a story of the Liverpool City Region – they share its resilience, strength and its diverse and fascinating story. In these times of global crisis, we all benefit from taking a step back and seeing our own experiences in a wider historical context. The city and its trees have survived war, disease and many other hardships; this pandemic is just the most recent.

We started by asking a broad cross section of people, from historians to tree professionals to family members, to share a story about a tree that was important to them. Eight of these were selected and Open Eye photographer and resident Andy Yates was commissioned to produce images of these important Liverpool trees. These photographs show trees from a few years old to over 1000 years old – so already we are starting to build a picture of the trees that have affected us and our city region as it was founded, has grown, thrived, declined and thrived again. We hope the project will also encourage us to engage with and be more aware of the trees and green spaces that enrich our lives, particularly the Urban Greenup interventions currently being introduced to enhance the city centre. Take a look on the Open Eye Stories website to see our trees so far.

We want this project to grow and expand, so now we’re asking for your stories. Please take a moment to share a picture of a tree that means something to you, along with a few words about what makes it important. We want to celebrate your stories of trees so they can add to our shared experience of this place we live and work in. Send these to andy@openeye.org.uk and they will become part of the story!

The Story of Liverpool City Region Through Its Trees is being delivered by Open Eye Gallery and dot-art, with support from Liverpool City Council and Mersey Forest. dot-art and Open Eye Gallery are committed to tackling the climate emergency in practical and accessible ways and have recently achieved “climate positive workforce” status by working with Ecologi to plant hundreds of trees every year and offset the carbon footprint of our activity as organisations.
