From Haringey Tree Wardens:
We hold tree-related events every two months in different parts of Haringey.
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 December Walk, we’re meeting a few streets away from South Tottenham Overground station. The walk lasts around an hour and you can join/leave at any time – all welcome.
Please meet us at 10am on Saturday 14th December at the corner of Crowland Road and Fairfax Road – nearst postcode is N15 6UL
map here: http://goo.gl/maps/2ZPl9 – kindly ‘join’ the event on the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/events/657778270908276 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.
