The last Saturday of November is national Tree Charter Day in the UK.

“Trees deserve to be celebrated. Each year the whole of UK society should unite in celebrating the value and importance of trees and woods to people. A Charter for Trees was launched in November 2017 on the 800th anniversary of the influential 1217 Charter of the Forest” The Woodland Trust

Your Mission Bookcrossers is to release at sunset on 24th November 2018, a book with a connection to trees, woods, forests or charters in the title, content, author or cover.

 

I have a copy of A Parrot in the Pepper Tree by Chris Stewart which I'll try to release at 4 pm on the 24th.

 

4 pm on the 24th.


That's November, you know, not this month...

Just noticed this somewhat late. Sunset here on 24th November was 15.57, so 4 pm is a few minutes late. In fact I couldn't get out to release it until it was almost dark.

SSMs used to be all on Sundays and for years I worked Sundays afternoon into evening and was almost always at work during sunset, so I got in the habit of releasing when I could, after I got out of work, on the same day. Personally, even though I am no longer at my SSM-killing job, I never got into the habit of checking the exact time of sunset and being that precise, as long as it's the same evening. But that's just me, maybe others are more exact.

 

I shall be releasing The Tidings of the Trees by Wolfgang Hilbig

 

Last March I hosted a challenge all about trees on the Dutch forum, now I have to dig deep to find a book for this challenge.
Found one :-)
