Out of the Woods takes you on a revelatory ramble through country and city – from woodlands of majestic oak and ash to mean streets lined with cherries.

Containing myriad tips for recognition and rich in tree-biography and gossip, this book will enable you to tell your birch from your beech as you pass at 70mph, and will inspire even the most unreformed couch potato to pull on the wellies and brave the local park in search of the national treasures scattered all around us.

“I never knew walking with trees could be so entertaining”
Kevin Rushby, Guardian
“The writing is gentle and rambling, a reminiscence of how times were”
Sunday Times
“Will Cohu offers an armchair guide to our arboreal roots”
