When Bob Gilbert moved to London's East End, he began to record the natural world of his new inner-city patch. Especially the trees: their history, stories, and relationship with people. This is his journey through the generations of trees that have helped shape the district of Poplar. Drawing on history and natural history, poetry and painting, myth and magic, he reveals the hidden influences that lost landscapes - the 'ghost trees' - have had on the shape of the city today.
