'For someone like me who is not a natural naturalist, the book reveals a previously unconsidered world situated just outside the front door, or at most only a bus rode away.' Ian Jack, Guardian; 'An easy-to-follow, thoroughly researched and detailed book: a worthy addition to any bookshelf'. Natural History Museum Magazine; 'A brilliant book that will appeal to everyone. Very definitely a worthy celebration of the urban forest.' British Wildlife; 'A thoroughly fitting tribute to the largest and most fascinating living features of our everyday environment.' RHS The Garden.
