Looking at the world from the vantage of a branch
I've spent a year exploring city trees, from parks and gardens to streets, roundabouts and riversides. This book tells the story of what I discovered in their branches.
The Tree Climber's Guide is about escape and a fresh perspective. By climbing trees we break the routine of our time-tabled lives and gain a new outlook on familiar ground.
The book aims to reconnect people to nature in the heart of the city and provide a bird's eye view of urban living, from the wildlife in the trees to the commuters on the street.
I believe passionately that adults should climb trees as much as children, and that by doing so, we forge a deeper connection to our natural surroundings.
