London is a green city swathed with many trees and whether you live in the metropolis or further afield and have a keen interest in trees, you can join a guided virtual tour of some of the city’s trees by author Paul Wood this Sunday (5 July 2020).
The event, organised by the Museum of Walking, will see the author and blogger take particpants on a virtual tour of the city’s trees, which will include some from Paul Wood’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 streetview, Paul Wood will share some of his own images and talk about each of the trees he has selected. As part of the 45-minute virtual tour, he will also discuss the individual stories of each tree, the history of Great Trees in London, and tree species. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the tour.
The virtual tour, which takes place between 10.30-11.30 am, is free to attend with the option to also make a donation. Anyone interested must register via the Museum of Walking website.
