The first guide to reveal the full, amazing variety of London’s street tree population is now an agenda-setting, canonical work. Paul Wood’s brilliant and acclaimed London’s Street Trees sold out three printings in its first 2017 edition, two more in its expanded 2020 edition, and in 2024 is republished yet again in a completely revised and further extended edition. In the meantime, the author has been working on a major new book for Penguin on the 1,000 most significant trees across the UK. When Tree-Hunting is published by Particular Books in September it will undoubtedly increase attention to his other titles, and notably London’s Street Trees and London Tree Walks. But London’s Street Trees has needed to be revised and expanded again, because the capital’s street tree population has continued to grow and gloriously diversify. Every month boroughs all over the capital are planting new species, from winter-flowering cherries to brighten up winter to Hackney’s shocking pink-flowering Toona sinensis.
