10:30 am - 11:30 am

Join Paul Wood on a tour of another batch of London’s greatest Streetview trees. Following the popular tour he led in April, and again at the Urban Tree Festival in May, we have persuaded him to devise the completely new Great Streetview Trees of London Part II.  Paul will wheel us around the capital to look at its finest trees, virtually. Included in this 45 minute guided virtual tour will be some trees from Paul’s new ‘Great Trees of London Map‘, and the new edition of ‘London’s Street Trees’ along with other intriguing trees found all over town from Acton to Edgware, all accessible through Google Streetview. As well as Google’s view, Paul will share some of his own images and talk about each of the trees he has selected.


Paul will discuss the individual stories of each tree, the history of ‘Great Trees‘ in London and he will talk about the tree species too. There will be a chance to ask questions at the end of the tour.
