A ride to look at some trees. Boring. Maybe – but trees, we are realizing, are not just a taken-for-granted background. They matter. They soak up CO2 and are good for our health.  Inspiration comes from a Zoom talk in March to Better Streets Southwark by Paul Wood about Tree Talk and his amazing Tree Map. Route is inspired by Paul’s Great Trees of London Map (£8 from book shops). Start is 10am from the Southwark Needle, south end of London Bridge, SE1 2PF. Handy for London Bridge Station if you want to get to the start by train.  Then an 11 mile circuit to 6 of the Great Trees.  Will go to Burgess Park, Lucas Gardens Camberwell, New Cross Gate, Sayes Court Park Deptford, Southwark Park and finish with the Tree of Heaven near Tooley St. Should end back at London Bridge at around 12 noon. Bruce leading.  Annotated route map at https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1WMWt1qLR_4_obNGcwNHD3Sghfv22eLEW&usp=sharing
