We are delighted to announce the second URBAN TREE FESTIVAL in London that will take place over the weekend 18-19 May 2019. Similar to last year, it would not have been possible without the generosity of a core team of volunteers and financial support from Trees for Cities.
Initial programme details will be announced here in due course. Respond to the Open Call for hosts to undertake walks and activities.
Imagine how bare a city would be without our trees. We say ‘our trees’ as our hearts open as we experience the healing and health benefit that trees provide. Just looking at trees can be inspiring and calming. We are constantly in awe of street trees, how they transform the concrete and sometimes drab urban environment. How a tree can capture our reflective and spiritual nature is also something we cherish. Being among nature and trees we find peace, reduce the mental chatter and relieve stress that we all experience.
Trees have an ability to lift our spirit and connect us to our higher sense, we wonder at their beauty and grace and marvel at their adaptability to persevere among the pollution and grime of inner city dwelling.
