Join in the fun at London Tree Week, and you can learn about the edible trees in Tower Hamlets Cemetery, perform your own dawn chorus in Walpole Park; and hear the history of London mulberry trees near St Paul's Cathedral.
There's also the chance to learn about woodland conservation in Barnet; write a tree-themed haiku in the Imperial War Museum's gardens; and join activist Guy Mannes-Abbott on a walk around the urban forest at the old Heygate Estate.
London Tree Week also includes an evening of talks by, among others, Londonist's favourite tree climber, Jack Cooke.
London Tree Week is an incredibly varied and brilliantly accessible festival: who doesn't love a tree?
Run by the Mayor of London, London Tree Week also includes an exhibition about trees at City Hall; and offers a couple of downloadable 'Tree Trails' to complete under your own steam if you can't make the special events themselves.
There's also a London Tree Week photography competition: share your photos on Instagram or Twitter using #LondonCanopy and #LondonTreeWeek. Organisers will choose a daily 'photo of the day' and there'll a prize for the 'photo of the week'.
