Make like a tree and get involved in London Tree Week

Trees in London park

London Tree Week runs from May 27th to June 4th and, whether you're a Londoner or fancy a visit to the capital, there's lots to do to ensure trees are put firmly on the map.

There are over 60 events planned over the week including talks, children's activities, exhibitions, 'walkshops' on mindfulness, poetry, art and photography and plenty of guided walks (coinciding rather neatly with the end of National Walking Month).

Learn the art of haiku with trees as your inspiration in Southwark, explore The Secret Life of Trees at a lecture in Camden or meet the VIP trees of Highgate Wood.

You can visit a 400-year-old mulberry tree in Charlton, find out how cities can help people with allergies through the trees they plant on streets, or sign up to be a 'threat detector' to protect woodlands.

Many of the events are free but booking is advised for most. To see the full schedule and book places, visit the London Tree Week webpage or follow The Woodland Trust online.
