Did you know that London is home to around 900,000 street trees? There are hundreds of different species to be found around town, but here author of the blog London’s Street Trees Paul Wood picks nine of his faves.
See if your local oak or cheery cherry blossom made the list. If not, there’s no harm in branching out.
If you’re after more London nature, look out for the bluebells that will be sprouting up in London's forests in April. Or walk into a field of purple haze when London’s lavender arrives in August.
Paul is leading street tree walks in Hackney and Pimlico with the Museum of Walking in February. He is the author of ‘London’s Street Trees: A Field Guide to the Urban Forest’ and The Street Tree blog. Find him on Twitter @thestreettree.
