A Wood of Our Own takes us on a journey of discovery into the history and development of a small corner of our countryside and evokes the beauty of our natural surroundings. Caring for the wood and its natural inhabitants using both ancient and modern skills, Julian experiences the evolving cycle of woodland life and encourages us to appreciate our environment first hand, in all seasons and all climates.

Finely illustrated by forester John White, and with a foreword by Alan Titchmarsh, A Wood of Our Own is engaging, informative and entertaining – aimed at everybody who enjoys the countryside.

This is an entertaining and personal account of the realisation of every forester’s ambition – ownership of a woodland. Anecdote, natural history and professional wisdom are combined in an enthralling account told with humour and devotion.
