I am a semi-pro photographer hoping to undertake a small project photographing Cherry Trees currently in bloom.
Having found details of the Natural History Museums survey I was thrilled to see such a project taking place but sadly despite my efforts could not locate what I am looking for....
I am hoping to find as many cherry trees as possible in close proximity to one another, the specific type of cherry is not important but ideally japanese in origin. The trees need to be positioned in a public space, preferably a park or green area but anywhere non-private will suffice. Lastly I need to find this within London (!?) preferably north London but anywhere considered 'on the tube map' will again be fine.
If anyone can help finding this location I would be very grateful,
There appear to be quite a lot of cherry trees recorded on the survey map for Wickham Road near Brockley tube station (south London). Some garden trees, but some recorded as being on the street. Hope that helps. If you zoom in to the map and click on individual tree icons you can find out if the person surveying the tree identified what kind of cherry tree it was. Although most/all were entered on the map in the first year of the survey, I know cherry trees are in bloom at the moment fairly close by, so there's a good chance these will be too.
