London’s Street Trees: A Field Guide to the Urban Forest

My book, ‘London’s Street Trees: A Field Guide to the Urban Forest’ is now available.

Final Cover hi-res

208 pages of street tree descriptions, anecdotes and history, and of course, hundreds of photos! It’s a journey through the urban forest: the astonishing multiplicity of trees lining the capital’s streets, from 19th-century Plane trees on the Embankment painted by Monet to Giant Redwoods in Edgware and a Magnolia in front of the Cheesegrater. You’ll learn why there are Australian Bottlebrush trees in a street in Pimlico, and where are the finest avenues of cherry trees in south London, and see the ‘world city’ of London in an entirely new way.

I’m thrilled too that Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has written the Foreword.

You can order from all the usual places (including Amazon) plus the Natural History Book Service if you prefer small enterprises. And the cover shot? London Planes on Kennington Road of course!
