The Woodland Way, Second Edition
A Permaculture Approach to Sustainable Woodland Management, 2nd Edition
A book for everyone who loves trees and woodlands, this completely revised and updated edition of Ben Law’s 2001 classic presents a range of practical and tested alternatives to conventional woodland management. Based on years of experience, Ben clearly demonstrates how to create biodiverse, healthy environments that create secure livelihoods and yield a great variety of value added products. He also argues the case for a new approach to planning, encouraging the creation of permaculture woodlands for the benefit of the community, the local environment and the global climate.
