About this book

From an author passionate about reconnecting both adults and children with nature, The Woodland Book aims to show anyone with an interest in nature and the great outdoors how to make the most of the unique environments provided by a canopy of trees. Packed with fascinating facts about woodlands including ancient rituals and the wildlife and flora that make it special. You'll learn how to identify different kinds of woodland, assess the age of a tree from a stump, recognise the birds that nest in the canopy by their song and meet other creatures such as bats, badgers and even the odd wild boar. Other activities include learning ancient woodland arts such as coppicing, searching for woodland fruits and building your own shelter and mythical 'green man'.

Perfect for adults and children who enjoy climbing, investigating, den building, camping and generally having fun, The Woodland Book will encourage readers to have fun with nature.
