Learn to see trees through the Professor’s eyes and his green-coloured lenses and you will see the environment around you in a very different way. Trees are not just outdoor furniture for us to use. If we learn to respect and care for trees then they can help us and the global environment in countless ways.
Professor Pricklethorn wants to help teachers, parents, and children learn how to make the connection between science and everyday life by learning about the many good things that trees do for us every single day.
Professor Pricklethorn rocked the tree house during the 2011 STIHL Tour des Trees (Virginia Beach to Washington) and the TREE Fund is delighted to welcome him back for the 2012 Oregon Tour. Kids and trees go together like peanut butter and jelly, and the Professor's message of "Give Trees A Chance" had kids of all ages spreading mulch and singing along. Thank you for helping us get kids excited about trees and giving us all a reason to sing.

Thanks to Professor Pricklethorn for teaching the students at Dougall Public School about the importance of trees. He kept students engaged, from grade 2 to grade 5 (as well as their teachers!). With a combination of humour, audience participation, and even a musical number to close, all were entertained while learning at the same time. Our students left the presentation knowing more about plant life, but feeling like they were part of a show. Thanks for making Science come alive!

Professor Pricklethorn's visit to Summit Heights P.S. was simply "tree"-mendous! His use of props, costumes and literature totally engaged our Kindergarten children. They laughed and learned, they sang and enjoyed. He truly brought to life the importance of trees in our world and how we should respect our environment.
Professor Elwood Pricklethorn's tree preaching has made me a BeLeafer ! He was a sliver short of stealing the whole dang show.
