The Great Trees of London
London has some wonderful trees, but it also has some Great Trees: horse chestnuts, London planes, oaks, beeches and other more unusual species that are notable for being rare, ancient, tall, historically significant or special in some way. This photographic portrait by Time Out, in collaboration with tree-planting charity Trees for Cities, includes a description of each tree, plus details of its exact location and how to get there by public transport. In addition, there are facts, figures and folklore about key species, a glossary of botanical terms, and information on diseases and other problems threatening the capital's trees.
