In 1985, the author fulfilled for himself what is every forester's ambition - the purchase of his own patch of woodland to develop, manage and enjoy. Combining anecdote, natural history, and professional wisdom, this is his account of what happened next. A factual account of the purchase and management of the wood runs alongside a description of the people, events and incidents associated with it.
