London is a Forest – A Labour of Love

I’m thrilled to announce, on Valentine’s Day, that my new book ‘London is a Forest’ will be published on 2nd May!

Book Now: London is a Forest by the ‘aptly named’ Paul Wood

It’s a book about Urban Nature, and, I hope, a new way to look at London.

There’s lots of great nature books out there, but this one’s a little different, it’s about the plants and animals that live in the city, especially the trees.

Rather than taking myself off to some remote rural idyll, I tramped the pavements, paths and byways of the capital in order to examine the non-human life that calls London home as well as our relationship with it.

My deep interest in the city’s plants; be they native, non-native or alien species, guided me to locations throughout London to discover the fascinating nature living on my doorstep. I hope this book tells a revealing story about the urban ecosystem and our role in shaping the surprising and diverse habitats to be found among the glass, steel and concrete.

London is a Forest is available to preorder on Amazon from today – order your copy now!

Have I piqued your interest? Over the coming weeks I’ll be posting some snippets from the book here as well as on my Twitter and Instagram.
