This book contains practically everything woodland managers and owners need to know about the management of native woods. There is a wealth of information on everything from controlling mammal pests, to managing for wildlife, to the preparation of a management plan. This book is over 500 pages of full colour photographs and tables and an inspiring and interesting text. The book is very easy and enjoyable to read and is by no means hard work or boring. This book was published after I graduated from university having studied forestry. If it had been available, I am sure it would have been terribly helpful to me in my work. I am delighted to recommend this book to everyone, particularly students of forestry, forest managers, conservationists, and woodland owners. It may seem expensive but it is definitely worth it. A lot of the information is available free as PDF documents on the Forestry Commission website and in other books, but with this single volume, you have everything you need in one place.
