Discover Veteran Trees
Saturday 23rd Jun 2018
10:00 am - 04:00 pm
The historic parkland of Greenwich Park, much of it on steep slopes giving stunning views across the Thames estuary, is also the setting for an array of veteran trees.
We will survey their ecology and importance as a habitat and look at the development of the parkland within its landscape. Other activities will include assessment of veteran trees for their wildlife value, mapping the location of our surveyed trees and collating the gathered data. Course fee includes FSC fold out chart: Tree Name Trail.
