Published in 2016, and winning an award for best woodland book the following year, The Green Wood Companion pays homage to trees, woodlands, woodland craft, and all things associated with them.
Practically bursting with information, it is an eclectic reference book with knobs on, peppered with short articles to whet your appetite and inspire, rammed full of photos, tables and line drawings, and contains the largest compendium of terms for tools, woodlands and crafts ever published.
NB: All books ordered from my website will be personally signed and accompanied by a complimentary oak bookmark.
