Opening our new season of Urban Forest Explorations, we are delighted to welcome back Paul Wood, author of ‘London is a Forest’ (2019) and ‘London’s Street Trees‘ (one of the Guardian’s Nature Books of 2017) to entice you to Explore the Urban Forest in Herne Hill.
Calling all blossom lovers! We have timed this walk to coincide with some of the most spectacular blossom to be seen in South London. A whole avenue of glorious Japanese Yoshino cherry trees will, with luck, be in full flower. This species is unusual in the UK, but is the most frequently seen Cherry variety found in Tokyo. But it doesn’t end there, further along our route we will see flowering Magnolia and other types of flowering street trees too. To add even more interest, this walk takes in two boroughs, Lambeth and Southwark, each with different planting policies meaning one side of the street may be planted with entirely different species to the other, so we can guarantee a superbly interesting and diverse range of species.
When offered last year, this walkshop sold out before the event ran – book early to avoid disappointment
