Tisdagar Trees A Crowd

The Willows: Highly immoral, incestuous, SEX-obsessed, b*stards!

av Trees A Crowd | Publicerades 5/11/2021

Our sixth tree… well, actually, our sixth, seventh, eighth, all the way up to our fourteenth tree; this episode is a whole riverbank full of filthy depraved sex-obsessed Wanton Willows (Sexy Salix spp.) - both native varieties and archaeophytes. The willow is an amazing coloniser - which is one reason why the British Isles boasts so many unique species and hybrids - imbued with an obsession of having sex with anything even remotely similar! This episode explores hybridisation, colonisation, pollination and is illuminated by many wonderful guests. A tree you undoubtedly know well (whomping willow, old man willow, wind in the willows... etc...) yet seen from a very revealing angle! More from David Oakes as he uproots the secrets and stories beneath the 56(ish) Native Trees of the British Isles can be found at: https://www.treesacrowd.fm/56Trees/ Weekly episodes available early AND bonus content made free to forage by "Subscribtion Squirrels" on our Patreon.
