Hillcrest Estate, Highgate


We hold tree-related events every month in different parts of Haringey.

This is a free opportunity to discover more about local street trees. We walk along a suitable street, exchanging knowledge. Some of us do maintenance if needed. Most come to look and learn.

We’re going to be walking around this estate with it’s interesting trees, hoping to make a map of them. THis will involve making sure we know which tree is which, and that means an exercise in Tree Identification that will better equip you to recognise trees wherever you are.

Please meet us at 3pm on Sunday 19th October at the entrance to the estate:

141019 Highgate Hillcrest Estate

There are a number of species here – will you help us identify them? You can identify trees in various ways – there’s a list that can help on our website http://haringeytreewardens.org.uk/treeinfo

Please ‘join’ the event on Facebook or contact us so we know you intend to join us – it really helps!

Complete beginners are welcome – several of us know very little, some of us know quite a bit and we’re all keen to learn.

If you have any books or guides that might help give us a key to tree identification, please bring what you can easily carry.

Photographers are welcome – we always looking to add to our list of identified trees and hope you’ll contribute a few of the pictures you take if you wish.

The Tree Walk is intended to last around an hour. Rain will not stop us – wise to be prepared though.

Please note that you don’t have to be a tree warden to join in – many people simply turn up every so often to look and learn and sometimes to contribute.
