Welcome

Welcome to The Street Tree, a website mostly about trees, mostly in London.

I’m Paul Wood (yes, really), and I started this blog eight years ago. A lot has happened since then. My first book, London’s Street Trees was published in 2017, and my second book, London is a Forest, was published in May 2019.


I often do events including talks and leading walks around London’s Urban Forest.
