Event Description

We hold tree-related events every two months in different parts of Harringey.

This is a free opportunity to discover more about local street trees. We walk along a suitable street, exchanging knowledge. Some of us do maintenance if needed. Most come to look and learn.

For the February Walk, we've chosen the street trees in the St Anns area. Please meet us at 10am outside the Chestnuts Cafe at the edge of Chestnuts Park - 300 Saint Ann's Road

Complete beginners are welcome - several of us know very little, some of us know quite a bit and we're all keen to learn.

If you have any books or guides that might help give us a key to tree identification, please bring what you can easily carry.

Photographers are welcome - we always looking to add to our list of identified trees and hope you'll contribute a few of the pictures you take if you wish.

The Tree Walk is intended to last around an hour (can stretch to nearly two hours if people are happy). If it rains too much we will head for the nearest cafe and use leaves and small branches (and what we can see out of the window) to focus on what is around us.

Please note that you don't have to be a tree warden to join in - many people simply turn up every so often to look and learn and sometimes to contribute.

Please 'like' our facebook page - we aim to hold walks all over the borough, one every two months.

Will the walk be on sealed pavements? Wondering if I could come along with a buggy/ stroller...

Hi Claire! Anyone with a buggy is particularly welcome.

The walk is aimed squarely at people who show an interest in the trees growing on our local streets - we pause by several of the ones we come across and are conscious of there being a group, so even people who, like me, aren't speedy, have not gotten left behind on previous walks.

It's a walk along some streets near Chestnuts Park, so, assuming those have sealed pavements (most do) I'd say there should be no problems at all. If you do come along and there are any difficult areas for people, we'll avoid them.

Hope to see you on Saturday.

Chris
