I had thought that I would buy this book and sell it almost immediately but it still sits on by bookshelf. I ended up reading lots of it, enjoying it and learning lots about forests.
It's an academic book about forests - but if you have a brain and an interest in woodland you may find this interesting.
That said, it is a good reference book from a very knowledgeable author.
