Welcome

Welcome to The Street Tree, a website mostly about trees, mostly in London by Paul Wood (yes, really).

I need your help! My latest research project is underway… I’m researching the Remarkable Urban Trees of Britain and Ireland, and would love to enlist your help in tracking down the landmark trees in towns and cities everywhere. Find out more here.


A lot has happened since I started this blog ten years ago. My first book, London’s Street Trees was published in 2017, it went into a second edition in 2020, my second book, London is a Forest, was published in May 2019. My first map, Great Trees of London Map was published in 2020, and in October 2020, London Tree Walks was published.


I often host events including giving talks and leading walks around London’s Urban Forest, mostly they’re online at the moment…
