The first walking guide to reveal the full, amazing variety of London's urban arboretum.
Paul Wood's brilliant and acclaimed London's Street Trees sold out three printings in its first printing, and was republished in March 2020 in a new, revised and expanded edition.
One of its most popular features is the handful of 'tree walks' at the back, while the author is still leading his own guided 'street tree walks' every weekend somewhere in the capital. So now here is a whole book of tree walks around the capital – some a couple of miles, others to while away a whole day. They range from ancient woodlands in North London to the haunts of rock musicians in Chelsea, reveal the exotic world-city planting of Hackney and the legacy of a pioneering female mayor to beautify her south London borough, and even go in search of an elephant in Ealing. Along the way they show you the amazing arboreal variety of this sylvan city. How better to appreciate this gloriously green capital?
Paul Wood writes the popular blog The Street Tree. He is the author of London’s Street Trees, also published by Safe Haven, and London Is a Forest, appears regularly in the media, is a regular speaker on arboreal subjects, and lives in north London.
