A beautiful anthology of contemporary poems inspired by trees.

The IRON Book of Tree Poetry is edited by Eileen Jones and Peter Mortimer, with a foreword by celebrated tree expert and author Max Adams. Poets featured include Vicky Arthurs, Debjani Chatterjee, Linda France, Kate Fox, S.J. Litherland, Pippa Little, Ellen Phethean, Jacob Polley and many more.

The 50 poems in this collection celebrate planters and log splitters, cycles of life and illusory death, martyrdom and wonder. In these lines, the reader will find trees imagined as the spars, masts and knees of the wooden walls of the Navy, fulfilling contracts long-negotiated with forester, carpenter and shipwright. In these pages, the horse chestnut and white poplar, the quince and rowan (sweet rowan), the lumpen and decidedly upside down baobab; the ash (a tree of multiple personalities – a woodsman’s tree), the understated grey and orange sea buckthorn, find their voice and palette.”
Max Adams (Foreword)
