The Friends of Gillespie Park invite you on a walk led by Islington Tree Wardens in Gillespie Park, looking at and learning about the trees there. This is a free opportunity to discover more about our local trees. We walk around the park, exchanging knowledge and will help you use our one-page ‘tree key‘ ( to identify which tree is which. Learning how to identify trees will last you a lifetime. Some of us know a lot. Most come to look and learn. Gather in the cafe afterwards for a chat (optional). Please meet us at 3pm on Sunday 17th May in the ecology Centre Cafe – map here:,-0.1058653,18z?hl=en postcode N5 1PH 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/guides/apps on your phone that might help give us a key to tree identification, please bring them along. 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. If possible, please let us know you’re coming on the Islington Tree Wardens website ( and please 'join' this event here on this Facebook page.
