Do you think trees would make great TV and Radio? I do! Watch and listen:


Writing and journalism
As well as writing  several books including the first book on London’s Street Trees, I have written for a range of magazines and websites including Green Alliance, Bloom, The London Magazine, Time Out and the Londonist about many topics including urban nature, technology, art and culture. My piece ‘Did you know that London is the world’s largest urban forest?‘ was a cover feature for Time Out. I also write a regular column, Tales from the Urban Forest, for London in Bits.

Leading walks
I have led urban tree walks in London, Sheffield, Dublin, Newhaven and Philadelphia for groups between 10 and 30 people lasting between 1 and 2 hours. Organisations I have worked with include:

Walks can be tailored for special interest groups or to specific areas. I’m happy to discuss and advise.

– Nicola Baird from Islington Faces
