We have a new series of urban tree maps, beginning today with the release of our Great Trees of London Map. This will be followed by Great Trees of New York Map in the not too distant future.
Our new Great Trees of London Map reveals highlights from London’s uniquely diverse urban forest. Featuring rare species, magnificent English oaks, an ancient yew and the finest flowering cherries, this selection of 50 trees spans from Kew Gardens to Greenwich Park, and Tottenham to Brixton. The map includes photography, an introduction and descriptions by Paul Wood.
As with all of our maps, this title is printed on recycled FSC-certified paper in the UK by Generation Press, a carbon neutral, family-owned printer. The map opens to A2 (420 x 594mm, 16.53 x 23.39 inches), folds to A5 (148 × 210mm or 5.83 × 8.27 inches), and is protected by a band.
Great Trees of London Map features a wide variety of trees, some well known and celebrated, others that we felt deserved recognition. We hope the map inspires Londoners and visitors alike to take an interest in our arboreal heritage, and to help ensure they remain part of urban landscape. A few trees are highlighted below.
The Hardy Ash at St Pancras Old Church
Sessile Oak at Bruce Castle
