In London, trees can go unnoticed. They line the city's streets, punctuate its open spaces, fill its parks, but they are not often remarked upon, scarcely touched and rarer still, climbed. But as a meadow is not a meadow without its wildness, a city is not a city without its green spaces; London would not be London without its trees. Jack Cooke has spent the last year climbing the vast assortment of the city's trees for no other reason than sheer pleasure. In this book, Jack explores the city through its canopy; teetering on the edge of an oak's branches, crunching the bark of a dying elm, spying views from the treetops which few have ever seen.

More than half the world's population now lives in cities. Creating sustainable, healthy and aesthetic urban environments is therefore a major policy goal and research agenda. This comprehensive handbook provides a global overview of the state of the art and science of urban forestry. It describes the multiple roles and benefits of urban green areas in general and the specific role of trees, including for issues such as air quality, human well-being and stormwater management. It reviews the various stresses experienced by trees in cities and tolerance mechanisms, as well as cultural techniques for either pre-conditioning or alleviating stress after planting. It sets out sound planning, design, species selection, establishment and management of urban trees. It shows that close interactions with the local urban communities who benefit from trees are key to success. By drawing upon international state-of-art knowledge on arboriculture and urban forestry, the book provides a definitive overview of the field and is an essential reference text for students, researchers and practitioners.
