Events that the Reading Tree Warden Network are involved in

The Reading Tree Wardens organise an annual programme of walks, talks, training, and support the extensive tree planting programme across Reading.

Winter Tree Identification walk at Prospect Park, Saturday 5 February, and Sunday 6 February Meet at the car park entered from Liebenrood Road.

For our first event of the year,we take a guided walk with a different slant: can you identify the trees in Winter? Yes, you can! And Anna, walks designer and Reading Tree Wardens Coordinator, will show you how. Bookings now open, just a few left,at rtwn2011

Beanpole Day Plant Sale at Caversham Court Gardens, Saturday 23 April 2022, 10-3.

This is our best fund raiser for printing new walks leaflets, topping up the First Aid bags, getting in new equipment (for example, we want to buy "Please water me" tags for newly planted trees). Have you got some garden plants, vegetable plants (runner beans and strawberry plants sell like hot cakes), plants that you split in the autumn, young tree saplings, that you could donate? Please save them for April or start sowing in your greenhouse and bring them on the day. You can also DELIVER them beforehand to drop-off points in West Reading, East Reading and Caversham. Please do come and support us: if you don't have a garden, perhaps you could purchase a box of Summer plants or give a donation? Our famous walks leaflets will also be available. It would be great to see you!

More events to come!.

After the planting of our Jubilee tree on 1 June and a successful Spring Walk in the Woods with Geoff Sawers in Lousehill Copse on 4 June, we have been very busy with tree planting projects and dealing with stressed trees in the Summer Drought. We are taking a summer break now and expect to be back with a new programme of events in the autumn.

Autumnal Walk Saturday 5 November, 11-12.30

Come and join us at High Wood to take in the giant Coastal Redwoods and mature trees of the old Bulmershe estate in autumnal glory! Experienced and knowledgeable walks leader Marcus Wheeler leads us through this stunning woodland in autumn colour and on to South Lake and back. To book a place, drop us a line at
