The Weather Tree Poster
designed by artist Dorothy Thelwall in 1983
What is a Weather Tree?
The Weather Tree is a poster (85 x 64cm) depicting a tree with twelve branches to represent the twelve months of the year and with a leaf for every day of the year. Colours are chosen to represent different weather types and a leaf is coloured in each day with the appropriate colour(s). At the end of the year you will have a unique, lasting and individual record of the weather in your locality.
Who's it for?
The Weather Tree is a popular present for all ages from pre-school children to gardeners, environmentalists and artists.
It is easily coloured in using ink pens, water colours, pastels or even crayons.
Customise your Weather Tree
Further "leaves" can be added to the key to give a more detailed breakdown of weather types. Details such as frost, wind, thunder etc. can be recorded by outlining the leaf in a particular colour and maximum and minimum temperatures can be written next to each leaf.
