Owning a small wood or being able to help look after one well has become an increasingly popular subject. This book is all you need to know about the basics. ‘Getting Started in Your Own Wood’ is an expanded and updated edition of Julian’s hugely successful ‘Badgers, Beeches and Blisters’, first published in 2006 and reprinted four times. Every chapter has been revised, and two new chapters added by Will Rolls on firewood and tree pests and diseases.
This new edition includes: first steps; planting and caring for trees; crafts, products and firewood; enriching wildlife and natural regeneration; coppicing, pollarding, pruning and thinning; advice and where to get help.
