We love maps and thought it would be nice to show which areas of London have been the most enthusiastic tree walkers based on tree walks generated.
North and South London were particularly hot, with Brixton, Balham, Camden and Hackney shining out. It would be great to light up east and west!
Over the past few months, there has been a huge interest from people taking in their local surroundings and appreciating their environment more. It has been great to hear how TreeTalk has been able to make a difference, and to help make that every day experience a little bit better for everyone. What's nice, is the way everyone focuses on the features is different way.
We love these articles!
