Tree walks at the Welsh Harp

After five fabulous tree walks in 2021, we're excited to announce our 2022 programme, which will start with tree identification in winter. Led by conservation abroriculturalist and ecologist Russell Miller, this walk will focus on how to identify trees when they have no leaves. Suitable for beginners and those who already know how to identify trees in summer.

Winter Tree Identification Walk: Sunday 6th February, 2-3:30pm. Register here.

Russell is an independent professional ecologist and arboriculturalist. He specialises in veteran tree ecology, tree pathology, bees and other pollinators as well as teaching and community engagement. He has been chair of the Ancient Tree Forum for 5 years, founded Tree Musketeers (2003) and Sustainable Hackney (2010). He also led conservation weeks for Trees for Life in the Scottish Highlands for 15 years.
