Tree-rific Really detailed info and pictures. Foreword by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Comprehensive guide to certain trees included. Very inspiring. Brilliant cover and pictures.I also bought The Woodland Year because I like that i can dip into it and think about what i might need to do in the woodland at a certain time of year.

Accessible and hopeful guide to greenwood crafts and products. Yet another fabulous book from ben, I have pretty much all the books of a similar ilk. This one packages woodland crafts in a much more accessible and comprehensive way than has been done before. The illustrations are great and Bens obvious love and passion for what he does with a future proofing sustainable philosophy which underpins all his work. Mike Abbots books go into a lot more detail but I think this one is aimed at a different market.
