Trees in the Pinetum

Highbury Park Tree Trail

Our new Highbury Tree Trail was launched on June 11th 2018, and is in a similar format to our other informative leaflets. Written by Ellen Pisolkar and beautifully illustrated by artist Catharine Clarke, it provides a wealth of information for anyone who is interested in learning about the range of fantastic trees in the Highbury landscape. Rosemary Dewar has added some activities for children to enjoy on the Tree Trail. We hope you enjoy exploring and learning more about our trees in all seasons. We will continue to hold guided tree walks around Highbury, so check out our events programme to find when the next one might be.

Tree Survey

We have been gathering information about ‘veteran’ trees since February 2007, and are compiling that information for display here. At the moment, some of the data is set out in a simple table here.

The table can be sorted and searched by any of the data fields. So if you want to find Whitebeam, you can either search for Whitebeam or sort by Species and scroll to the W part of the list.

    I was saddened today to see a large tree had split and half of it fallen down. The tree in question is close to the long pond. It must have happened very recently as it was intact yesterday. It is fortunate no-one was standing close to it when it came down. Gwen

    Thanks very much for your enquiry, Tony. As I explained in the email, all the trees at Highbury are on a Council data base and checked every 5 years for health and safety reasons. All the tree work currently being undertaken is as a result of decisions taken by the Council’s tree officer. However, we plant new trees every year. In the last few years there have been 200 – 300 new trees planted annually in our Nature Improvement Area. They are small trees and will take time to grow but will get there in time!

    I have emailed Friends also, but given the amount of tree felling in the park, are there any plans to plant new trees?
