Product Synopsis

"The Great Trees of London" brings together over 60 trees around the capital that have achieved 'Great Tree' status - as determined by the popular tree-planting charity Trees for Cities. As you might expect, there are plenty of London planes, horse chestnuts and oaks - the everyday trees that everyone is familiar with - but also some rarer species. The Greenwich Park Shagback Hickory, for instance, probably the largest such tree in the country, and the Marble Hill Black Walnut, with its unusual pitch-black bark. There are magnificent, towering specimens, such as the Forty Hall Cedar of Lebanon and the Berkeley Square Plane, as well as humbler trees that, on first glance, might not deserve the accolade of Great. But they are special for other reasons: the Marylebone Elm is one such: it survived bombing in World War II (which destroyed the adjacent church) as well as Dutch Elm Disease in the 1970s, which wiped out three-quarters of Britain's elms. Some incredibly venerable trees appear too, such as the Charlton House Mulberry, planted at the request of James I at the turn of the 17th century, and the Richmond Royal Oak, estimated to be 750 years old.

Packed with glorious colour photography taken in various seasons, this book also contains a glossary of botanical terms; facts, figures and folklore about key species. And where else in the capital you'll find usual or interesting trees.

My favourite tree is the Ankerwyke Yew, beside the River Thames at Runneymede. While that remains outside the scope of this book, it is my pleasure to recommend visiting these great trees of London. - Tristan
