Commemorative Trees

Liberty tree, eastern France
An ash tree, planted in 1848, year of revolutions across Europe, in the village of Saales, in the Vosges


Every year, on March 8, International Women’s Day,
this tree in Stoke Newington blooms with women’s emblems.
These garlands,
mostly in Suffragette colours of purple and green,
have weathered the rain and gales of the last few months.
