“The first modern history of Scottish woodlands explores the changing relationship between trees and people from the time of Scotland’s first settlement…” The opening chapters describe the early history; further chapters consider traditional uses and management, the impact of outsiders on the woodland, and the effect of industrialisation. There are case studies of management at Strathcarron, Glenorchy, Rothiemurchus and on Skye.
