Part of the first ever Urban Tree Festival, 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 Hampstead


We are crowdfunding to raise money to keep ticket prices low for events during the Urban Tree Festival – our crowdfunding campaign runs until the 1 May – and you can secure a ticket for this event by pledging £10 to our crowdfunder campaign.  This not only secures you a ticket but also brings in a further £10 as Trees for Cities are match funding every pledge until we meet our target of £1,500. 


Explore the Urban Forest in Hampstead

Take a closer look at the remarkable diversity of kerbside trees to be found in NW3. We can expect to see at least a dozen different tree species from elegant Birches to one of London’s largest Plane trees. Please note we will be taking in some fairly steep hills!

This event is not suitable for young children.  Older children must be accompanied and do not have to pay for a ticket.
