Thinking Aloud
Fiona Stafford: Meaning of Trees in Our Emotional Lives and Culture
Today’s guest on Thinking Aloud is the Oxford professor Fiona Stafford.  Stafford is a literary scholar by training, not a botanist, but trees have been her constant companions throughout her life.  Her new book The Long, Long Life of Trees talks not so much about the science of trees as about the meaning of trees: how they have always mattered for us and carried strong emotional associations.—Original airdate: 2/8/2017
