The Woodland Way: A Permaculture Approach to Sustainable Woodland Management

The Woodland Way: A Permaculture Approach to Sustainable Woodland Management

by Ben Law, 231 pages, 6½x9, softcover. Living in his Prickly Nut Wood, Ben Law could be a character stepping out of Tolkien, but he’s a real guy crafting his life from the woods of Sussex, England. This book shares his radical ideas about woodland management and guides others to finding their way to a similar path. Law’s life largely revolves around the practice of coppicing—an ancient and sustainable practice of cutting wood to produce multiple stems, which are later harvested for building and woodcraft. The methods and ideas in this book are transferable to North America. (Now I know what I can do with my blasted re-sprouting red maple!) Chapters cover how to assess, establish and manage woodlands to create products and food from the forest. The writing is detailed and personal with great accompanying photos and illustrations. -Jen Ries
