Walking Tour: London’s Street Trees: A Field Guide to the Urban Forest

Series: Bloomsbury Festival
Date: Saturday 20 October 2018
Time: 10:30
Venue: Starting at Architectural Association, 36 Bedford Square, London, WC1B 3ES
Running time: 0 mins


Paul Wood – author of London’s Street Trees: A Field Guide to the Urban Forest – will lead a walking tour setting off from the Architectural Association (AA) School of Architecture to explore London’s urban forest.


Looking specifically at street trees and their impact on the cityscape, Paul will provide a brief history of urban trees and their use in planning from the 19th century onwards and offer some thoughts on best practice for planners and architects. Taking in streets around Bedford Square in Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia, coincidentally spanning two boroughs – Westminster and Camden – we will look at trees in situ highlighting their impact on the city, the differences between local authority planting, and the remarkable variety of species to be found.


This event was originally held as part of the Bedford Square Festival, an annual four-day programme of free events in July organised as a collaboration between five of the cultural institutions that reside on Bedford Square in Bloomsbury: The Architectural Association, New College of the Humanites, the Paul Mellon Centre, Sotheby’s Institute of Art and Yale University Press London.
