Listening devices

Alex Metcalf's Tree Listening at Fermyn Woods Country Park in Northants allows you to hear the inner life of a tree by listening to the sound of water being pulled up from the roots to the leaves via the xylem tubes. Absolutely magical!


You can find out more about the installation here.
