Book Description

Mr Edlin's book is by no means confined to problems of afforestation and the supply of timber. He deals in detail with all our important trees and shrubs, both native and introduced, against the background of their natural environment; and also has much to say about their uses and about the woodland crafts - many of them dying out - that have been handed down from the past/
