About this book

The guide to growing oak trees for quality timber is an English version of Jean Lemaire's Le Chene Autrement, translated from French by Bede Howell. Much-admired by oak growers across the world, Jean Lamaire's book is the outcome of 30 years research and explains how oak can be grown on a much shorter rotation than previously thought.

Its lavishly illustrated 176 full colour pages include exhaustive notes and silvicultural advice drawn from Jean Lamaire’s many years experience of growing superb quality oaks.
