Incorporating 30 years of knowledge and experience from woodsman Ben Law, this book will guide you through everything you need to know if you are managing or intend to manage a small woodland. Ben’s inspiring, forest-dwelling life has allowed him to draw on detailed information and practical examples based on his personal experience, giving this beautiful book an entirely authentic voice.
Infused in each page is a deep respect for the traditions of the past while also embracing new ideas, methods and creative thinking. This holistic approach looks at the entire woodland – the wildlife it supports, the natural cycles of growth and life, the precious products it creates and the communities that inhabit and surround it. All the while, understanding and emphasizing that it is a balance of all these things that makes a healthy, biodiverse, resilient ecosystem.
