Emma aged 10 on West Coast Trail rope bridge, Vancouver Island

I love trees. I became a tree obsessive six years ago after realising that, in the face of ash dieback disease, I did not actually know what an ash tree looked like. Starting with the excellent Collins gem guide to trees and working my way up to the illustrated Collins British tree guide, I am now a passionate Tree Spotter.

I am a member of Oxford Urban Wildlife Group and am involved in the regeneration of Boundary Brook Nature Reserve in East Oxford.
