About this book

Author Julian Evans has worked with woodlands for twenty-five years and was the UK Forestry Commission's Chief Research Officer for much of this time. In 1985 he decided to buy his own small wood in North Hampshire, fulfilling every forester's dream. Caring for the wood and its natural inhabitants using both ancient and modern skills, Evans experiences the evolving cycle of woodland life and encourages us to appreciate our environment firsthand in all seasons, all climates. Finely illustrated and including a foreword by Alan Titchmarsh, A Wood of Our Own is engaging, informative, and entertaining – aimed at everybody who enjoys the countryside.
