Event description

Description

Part of the first ever Urban Tree Festival, 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 Peckham


We are crowdfunding to raise money to keep ticket prices low for events during the Urban Tree Festival - our crowdfunding campaign runs until the 1 May - and you can secure a ticket for this event by pledging £10 to our crowdfunder campaign. This not only secures you a ticket but also brings in a further £10 as Trees for Cities are match funding every pledge until we meet our target of £1,500. Tickets purchased here will be considerably more expensive.



Explore the Urban Forest in Peckham
Head to the temperate climes of Peckham, where a fascinating variety of trees - old and new - may be encountered on the hip streets of this trendy south London enclave. Thanks to the enlightened planting decisions of Southwark Council (one of the top London boroughs for street trees), we may find early-flowering Persian Ironwoods, Golden False Acacias and the delightful Bastard Service Tree among the extensive SE15 species list.

This event is not suitable for young children. Older children must be accompanied and do not have to pay for a ticket.
