If you love trees and are captivated by the idea of spending more time among them, you will love this beautiful book, which is illustrated with stunning colour photographs, The Woodland Year is an intimate month-by-month journey through Ben Law's yearly cycle of work in the woodland where he is privileged to live. Each month also includes guest contributions from woodlanders in other parts of England and Wales. The Woodland Year provides a fascinating insight into every aspect of sustainable woodland management: the cycles of nature, seasonal tasks, wild food gathering, wine making, mouthwatering and useful recipes, coppice crafts, round pole timber frame eco-building (pioneered by Ben in the UK), nature conservation, species diversity, tree profiles and the use of horses for woodland work. Describing a way of life that is not just deeply satisfying but also economically and ecologically viable, this book holds some fundamental keys to how we can achieve a lower carbon society.
