“Counting Trees was inspired by my suddenly noticing some beautiful trees on the edge of a car park which I must have walked under/round thousands of times. Like many people, the climate change crisis has made me more aware of the need to protect our trees and to appreciate them more and I wanted to use this opportunity to write a short play that would hopefully make the audience look up and around at the amazing nature that surrounds us.”
