Winter Tree Tour

Ecologist Mary will take you on a journey around amazing trees that dominate the cemetery. Winter can be a tricky time of year to identify trees, when many native species have shed their autumnal leaves and bare branches stretch to the sky so our guide will help you with identification tricks and tips.

Without the distraction of their leafy crowns it is a fantastic opportunity to take a closer look at the distinctive silhouettes and characteristics that set different tree species apart.

Arnos Vale Cemetery is designated a Site of Nature Conservation Interest so it is a very important place for wildlife.

It has been a beauty spot since the Georgian Period and is home to a beautiful array of plants, wildlife and trees.   This walk will take in various parts of the 45 acre site from grassland to woodland, from managed land to wild spaces. On this seasonal walk with our knowledgeable ecologist, you will discover the art of tree identification using subtle clues in their buds, branches, bark and more.
