Description

Paul Wood’s brilliant and acclaimed London’s Street Trees sold out three printings in its first edition, is a fixture in London’s bookshops and museum and gallery gift shops, and was republished in Spring 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. So now here 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 Ealing and Highgate, to see nineteenth-century London Planes lining the Embankment, newly-planted Persian Silk Trees in Brockley, and a whole Dawn Redwood forest at Canary Wharf – while pointing out the architecture and social and natural history along the way. You’ll find trees taking you to the haunts of Seventies rock stars, in search of a long-buried circus elephant, and to some London’s highest ground with the most stunning views over the capital.
