London Tree Week 2016

How exciting – next week, Saturday 28 May – Sunday 5 June, is London Tree Week! I’m sure this fantastic initiative from the Mayor will prove to be a great success.

There are a whole raft of activities organised by City Hall’s environment department to check out on the London Tree Week pages.

Sorbus torminalis
Street thrill: Wild Service Tree flowering just off the Kingsland Road

Not to be outdone by Saddiq, I have also put together a somewhat taxing itinerary of a selection of London’s more unusual and overlooked trees like this thrilling Wild Service Tree (Sorbus torminalis) on St. Peter’s Way, N1.

You can find my listings on the tree-mendous TiCL app, available as  iOS and Android downloads.

I’ve listed 22 trees worth checking out all over London from Finsbury Park in the north to Croydon in the south and from Chiswick in the west to Canary Wharf in the east, the app will use your location to tell you where your nearest trees can be found.

Once you have the app downloaded, follow these steps to find my listings:

Also not to be missed is the London Tree Week photography competition. I shall be out snapping and posting with the hashtag #LondonCanopy next week, so please do keep an eye on my Twitter account for daily tree snaps like this one:

Long may London Tree Week continue.
