Gabriel Hemery books


I write about trees, forestry, and the environment. My next book, coming November 2023, is The Tree Almanac 2024. (Robinson Books). Currently, I am working on three guidebooks featuring 1000+ forest sites across Britain in The Forest Guide series (Bloomsbury Wildlife). Meanwhile, The New Sylva, was an award-winning book about trees and forestry published by Bloomsbury in 2014 and reprinted in 2021. I’ve also written two novels, released two short story collections, and a poetry anthology. My short stories have been included in two anthologies.

Tree Photography

I am a part-time professional photographer specialising in tree, forest and landscape photography. My images have featured in magazines, books, merchandising, and global advertising. I also take photographs for use in my own book projects, such as The Forest Guide series. Every year I produce a unique high-quality photo calendar featuring a selection of my treescape images. A selection of tree photographs are available to view on my dedicated tree photography webpages.
