London's Street Trees: A Field Guide to the Urban Forest by Paul Wood
Hand Signed by Paul Wood to the End Paper
New & Unread
Who would have thought there were over 400 different types of tree on London’s streets?
When the first edition of this wonderful guidebook came out in 2017, most people thought a street tree meant a London Plane. In fact, as it revealed, the capital’s magnificently green highways and avenues were home to everything from Olives to Giant Redwoods, American Sweetgums to Persian Silk Trees – an urban arboretum as vibrantly multi-cultural as this great world city itself. But the planting hasn’t stopped, so now this new, expanded, completely redesigned and revised edition contains even more trees and tree walks. It tells you where to find, amazingly, Persimmons and Peanut Butter Trees, Weeping Willows and Wedding Cake Trees, and how local communities are themselves now transforming their own London streets with trees.
'For someone like me who is not a natural naturalist, the book reveals a previously unconsidered world situated just outside the front door, or at most only a bus ride away’ - Ian Jack, Guardian
About the Author: Paul Wood arrived in London in the 1990s, having grown up on the chalk in Dover, and after graduating from art school in Cardiff. He is the author of several books on London Trees. A large Caucasian Wingnut tree grows at the end of his street.
