Event description

Description

Continuing the popular series of Stalking Trees walkshops, we are delighted to welcome Paul Wood, author of 'London Street Trees' (Guardian Nature Books of 2017) to entice you to Explore the Urban Forest in Herne Hill.


Calling all blossom lovers! We have timed this walk to coincide with some of the most spectacular blossom to be seen in South London. A whole avenue of glorious Japanese Yoshino cherry trees will, with luck, be in full flower. This species is unusual in the UK, but is the most frequently seen Cherry variety found in Tokyo. And it doesn’t end there, further along our route we will see flowering Magnolia and Cherry Plum street trees.

To add even more interest, this walk takes in two boroughs, Lambeth and Southwark, each with different planting policies meaning one side of the street may be planted with entirely different species to the other, so we can guarantee a superbly interesting and diverse range of trees to see.

Tickets £18 (plus Eventbrite booking fee) in advance / £22 on the day. (Accompanied children free)
We are offering £2 cash back on the day for early bird registrations made before 28/2/18.
