What are you doing to celebrate National Tree Week?
We hold tree-related events every two months in different parts of Haringey and every year we try to help the Council plant some trees.
The Aboricultural Department has allocated around 50 trees to this part of Haringey this year, and we hope to see the planting of 20 trees at this event alone.
Everyone is welcome - all ages, especially accompanied children.
Please meet us at 10am on Saturday 30th November in Trinity Park, in front of the Greek orthodox Church in Trintiy Road, N22 7LB
map here: http://goo.gl/maps/UCFWY - kindly 'join' the event on the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/events/531005706987247 there's a button at the bottom right of the photo) to let us know you're going. Contact us directly if you don't use FB - it really helps to know roughly how many are coming.
Please help us identify the trees we visit and/or learn how to do it yourself. There's a list of apps for smartphones that can help with this (if you have a reasonably modern one) on our website http://haringeytreewardens.org.uk/treeinfo
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. 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.
