From the publisher

Who’d have thought there were over 400 different types of tree on London’s streets?

When this wonderful guidebook came out in 2017, for most people a street tree meant a London Plane. In fact, as it revealed, the capital’s magnificently green streets were home to everything from Giant Redwoods to Persian Silk Trees. Here was an urban arboretum as vibrantly multicultural as this great world city itself.

But the planting hasn’t stopped, so once again this latest revised edition - the third - has even more pages and species. It tells you where to find, amazingly, Flamingo Chinese Cedars and Snowdrop Trees, a Bee-Bee Tree and even a Lemon, as well as whole avenues of flowering cherries – all on London streets – and how Londoners, be they visionary tree officers or local community groups, are transforming their own neighbourhoods.
