About this book

In 2011 a groundswell of public opinion halted the large scale sell-off of the forests, demonstrating the extent to which we value our wooded landscapes, even if our modern lives seldom take us to these important places. Britain’s woodlands occupy much less land than other European countries and our woods and trees are under threat – whether from development, from poor management or from simply not understanding the vital role that trees play in our lives – as witnessed by the recent large-scale felling of city trees in Sheffield.

Trees and woods offer great potential to rebuilding our wider relationship with nature, reinforcing local identity and sustaining wildlife. Tere is a need to plant millions of trees to lock up carbon to ameliorate the effects of climate change, to help shade our towns and cities and bring shelter and beauty to places.

Now the forester and campaigner Robin Walter has created a new guide on how we can best live with and value our trees, from individual specimens to vast forests, as well as celebrating the many people and organisations working to make a positive difference. This Common Ground handbook is an important and timely successor to the early books In a Nutshell, Community Orchards Handbook and the anthology Arboreal.

Robin Walter is a writer, forester, arborist, environmental campaigner and musician. He worked as a woodland officer for the Woodland Trust for many years and contributed to Arboreal, Little Toller’s 2016 anthology of woodland writing.
