Museum of Walking – Explore the Urban Forest: Chiswick
10.30am – 12.30pm, Sunday 18 March
Turnham Green Station, Turnham Green Terrace, London, W4 1QN
Continuing the popular series of Stalking Trees walkshops, the Museum of Walking are delighted to welcome Paul Wood, author of ‘London Street Trees’ (Guardian Nature Books of 2017) to entice you to Explore the Urban Forest in Chiswick.
After admiring the very fine, Plane tree lined Chiswick High Road, you will head off into the less-explored backstreets of this leafy West London enclave to discover a remarkable array of street trees. There are many well established and often exemplary specimens of less frequently encountered species including large Ginkgoes and Golden Rain Trees, a Copper Beech and an unusual River Birch.
Hopefully you will see some signs of spring on our route too: likely to encounter early flowering cherries and swelling buds and catkins of other species. If you’re interested in winter tree IDs, this might be one of the last opportunities before the spring really starts to take hold!
