About this book

The accepted view of Irish woodlands is that Ireland was covered in trees until the English came and chopped them down. While admirable in its brevity, this interpretation is inadequate regarding the actual management of Irish forests from the later Gaelic era to the close of the 18th century. The Woods of Ireland focuses on the fundamentally pragmatic and commercial view of trees adopted by much of Gaelic civilization, as well as the attempts of the various Anglo-Irish administrations to introduce more conservative woodland practices. By the late 17th century, the re-afforestation of Ireland had become a paramount badge of respectability for Irish landowners and gave rise to a distinctive body of landscape design and painting, exemplified by the works of Thomas Roberts and William Ashford.
