Urban Forest: Crouch End

Sunday 8 April 10.30am-12.30pm Start: Hornsey Town Hall, London N8 9JJ – by the fountain. (15 minutes walk from Crouch Hill Overground, or get the W7 bus from Finsbury Park station. Crouch End is also served by the 41 and 91 bus routes).

Continuing the popular series of Stalking Trees walkshops, we 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 Crouch End.

It may come as no surprise to hear that leafy Crouch End is an arboreal hotspot, so this is an opportunity to look in more detail at the range of trees found in this increasingly respectable North London neighbourhood.

From the towering conifers outside the library, to newly planted trees of many different species on the streets between Park Road and Crouch End Hill, highlights include a Nettle Tree and a Snakebark Maple. But the showstopper on our route will be Crouch End’s finest Cherry tree avenue which, at this time in previous years, has been in glorious full bloom!
