Paul Wood’s brilliant and acclaimed London's Street Trees sold 5,000 copies in three printings, has become a fixture in London’s bookshops and museum and gallery gift shops, 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.
London Tree Walks is a whole book of tree walks around the capital – some for an hour or two, others for an afternoon, and several to while away a whole day. They take you to Croydon and Crouch End, to see Magnolias in the City, Olives in Haringey, avenues of Cherries in Herne Hill. There is even a ‘Tree Thameslink’ to take you right across London. 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.
