A new season of Urban Forest Explorations. We are delighted to welcome back Paul Wood, author of ‘London Street Trees‘ (Guardian Nature Books of 2017) to entice you to Explore the Urban Forest in Muswell Hill.
Did you know London is a forest? According to one UN definition it is. On this walk around elevated neighbourhood of Muswell Hill, we will take a close look at the urban forest and its development from some of the finest London Plane avenues in town to the ancient woodland of Coldfall Wood.
Small pockets of ancient woodland provide evidence that glaciation came this far south in Britain, one such is Coldfall Woods in Muswell Hill. Traditionally managed in the past we will see Oak standards with former Hornbeam coppice and maybe the elusive Wild Service Tree. The residential streets of Muswell Hill play host to a variety of mature street trees, including Hornbeam, Birches and Whitebeam.
We have had a remarkable summer, with some of London’s hottest temperatures – how have our street trees fared? Will the autumn colours persist longer this year, or will see leaf fall earlier? Find out the answers from street tree guru Paul on this fascinating and lovely walk.
