Respect trees. And respect them again; they are partners in life.” Diana Beresford-Kroeger
Join Tree Fest Ottawa and Forests Without Borders at Trees for Life, an evening with world-recognized tree expert Diana Beresford-Kroeger and short documentary films about people changing the world one tree at a time.
Diana Beresford-Kroeger, Canadian botanist, medical biochemist, and self-described renegade scientist, is on a mission to educate people around the world about the life-giving properties of trees, and the difference we can make by helping to replant the global forest.
Her “renegade science” draws from the traditions of Western medicine and botany, aboriginal healing, and the ancient world to promote a visionary bioplan with a profound call to action: for us to reconnect with the majesty of nature, to learn about the heritage and diverse properties of trees, and to reforest our habitats with old-growth species.
Diana’s talk, Banking on Trees, will describe the science and magic of trees locally and globally, how they hold answers to some of the most pressing human problems, her activism to promote and protect trees for life, and how we can get involved. Come to this free public event to meet and learn from the engaging and inspiring Diana Beresford-Kroeger.

Founded in 2015, Tree Fest Ottawa connects people with trees, inspires dialogue and learning, and transforms how we see, engage with, and act in the world around us. We use the power of photographs and stories to capture public attention and encourage people to take action to protect the trees in our environment – and plant new native trees.
