Oak: fine timber in 100 years is a guide to growing oak trees for quality timber and is an English version of Jean Lemaire’s Le Chene Autrement, translated from French by Bede Howell.

Much-admired by oak growers across the world, Jean Lemaire’s book is the outcome of 30 years research and explains how oak can be grown on a much shorter rotation than previously thought. Its lavishly illustrated 176 full colour pages include exhaustive notes and silvicultural advice drawn from Jean Lemaire’s many years experience of growing superb quality oaks.

Translator Bede Howell, former President of the Royal Forestry Society, is a Chartered Forester who has worked in French oak woods and sawmills and whose knowledge of oak and its silviculture in Britain is extensive.
