They are told about in the online publication Trees, parks, people - The cultural history of trees and parks. In addition, the articles discuss the development of green areas, parks and their plans, but also unrealized plans. The authors of the publication are Ella Haavisto, Marketta Harju-Autti, Mervi Lfgren Autti, Pivi Rahikainen, Monica Tennberg and Virpi Vainio.

The purpose of the exhibition and the related publication is to encourage visitors to the exhibition to face the importance of trees, parks and the surrounding nature.
