Oliver Rackham (1939-2015) was a leading ecologist and historian of Britain's woodlands and the landscape. In this, his last great work, he 'deals with the multiple interactions between trees and the environment, trees and other trees, trees and other plants, trees and fungi, trees and animals, and trees and people'. The book offers a history of Britain's woodlands, from the evolution of wildwood, through our use of woods and timber, to recent conservation efforts and their results.
