Copse: A Cartoon Manual of Tree Protesting


download the imposed PDF for printing here

This 28 page manual is a peak into artist, cartoonist, and activists Kate Evans self-published book about the history of the UK anti-road and opencasts protests of the 1990s.  The book is now an artifact of sorts and no longer printed – copies can still be found for $80-100.  This manual provides some insight into the book and covers various tree protesting tactics.  The cartoons are a glimpse into the history of climbing and protest.  That said, techniques have evolved and safer practices exist so don’t use this as a how-to climb reference.  The download is imposed so print and fold for an easy to read manual.
