Trees are all around us, taken for granted, marking the seasons, and forming the backdrop to our daily lives. Who hasn’t got a favourite tree? Who hasn’t planted a tree? Climbed a tree? Sat in the shade of a tree? Who hasn’t walked happily through a wood?
‘The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more’
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here are poems about trees, woods and orchards that reflect that wonder. A wonder that we feel and want to share. If you love trees, this is for you.

40 Sonnets by Don Paterson£10.99
This new collection from Don Paterson, his first since the Forward prize-winning Rain in 2009, is a series of forty sonnets. Some take a more traditional form, some are highly experimental, but what these poems share is a lyrical intelligence and musical gift that has been visible in his work since his first book of poems, Nil Nil, in 2009.
