Tall Trees and Small Woods

12 Jan 2021

The RSFS have updated the late Bill Mutch’s iconic book to reflect 21st century forestry practice while still retaining the charm of the original. The author was Head of the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Edinburgh University and first President of the Institute of Chartered Foresters. His research and publications covered forest economics, forest recreation, farm woodlands and deer management. Tall Trees and Small Woods covers all practical aspects of woodland creation: selection of the right tree to suit soils and climate, planting, pruning and aftercare. Planning and design of multi-purpose woodlands, hedges and farm woodlands, marketing, harvesting and timber production are all covered, together with the wider role woodlands play in the lives and well-being of people and wildlife.
