Most people would assume that the trees along the capital's streets are London planes. That's what street trees are? In fact, the magnificently green streets of London are in no way a monoculture - these days over 300 different species and cultivars grace its streets, from giant redwoods in Edgware to Olive trees and a Magnolia outside the Cheesgrater. Every London borough is different. There are indeed Plane trees that go back to the building of the Embankment in the nineteenth century - but also new species around the capital that wonderfully reflect its modern multicultural vibrancy. Do you know why there are Australian silver wattle and bottlebrush trees in the streets of Pimlico? Or which London street trees were painted by Monet? But until now there has been no book on this remarkable phenomenon. Paul Wood's endlessly fascinating guide is sure to attract widespread media attention, and become a fixture in all the London sections of bookshops as well as the gift shops of all London tourist attractions. Published to coincide with London Tree Week 2017 - and, of course, the trees along our streets coming gloriously into leaf again - it will make everyone in London look at their own street in a new way.
