If Trees Could Talk takes you on a tour of Belfast and its surroundings, looking at how the landscape has evolved and continues to evolve.
It visits many of our best-loved woods, public spaces and tree-lined city streets and examines historic demesnes, woodland gardens and parks where deer once roamed. Chapters explore long-lost sites such as Cromac Wood, where oak and alder once grew by the River Lagan, and locations where aged trees and the remnants of old woodlands can still be seen. The book reveals the secrets of some trees, describing the remarkable veteran oaks at Belvoir Park and the long-established hazel woods found on hillsides around the city.
