About this book

Welcome return to print of this classic work on British woodland, first published in 1976. Like other books by this historian, Trees and Woodland in the British Landscape combines mastery of detail with wit and scholarship. More than a history of woodlands or a fieldwork guide to woodlands and the landscape, this edition has been updated in the light of recent research findings and new attitudes to conservation.
