Ilkley Tree Trails

A discussion in a Land & Nature meeting about how to interest people in the value of trees gave rise to the idea of Ilkley Tree Trails. The first trail, “Introduction to Trees”, was launched in summer 2020 with Climate Action Ilkley and local residents contributing to the print cost.

This original edition has been followed by “Town Centre Trees”, “Darwin Gardens and the Moor” and “Trees in Winter”.

In 2024 the booklets are still available at no cost from the Grove Book Shop and the Ilkley Visitors Centre. Several local organisations have contributed to the print costs including Ilkeley U3A, Wharfedale Naturalists and Ilkley Bid.

You can also download the booklets from
