About this book

The original edition of this modern classic, which described 'the history and utilisation' of the woodlands of Wales up to the formation of the Forestry Commission in 1919, was published in 1982. This completely new and updated version describes Wales's woodlands up to the establishment of the Welsh Assembly and the publication of Wales's own forestry strategy in 1999. The volume includes much additional historical material which has come to light since 1982, along with new chapters describing the famous and the big trees of Wales, and summarizing the enormous developments of forestry that transformed the Welsh countryside during the twentieth century.
