The Woodland Year



Ben Law

From the author of ‘The Woodland House’ comes this book full of coppicing crafts, tempting woodland receipes (how about Bilberry Pancakes?), timber framing, eco-building, nature conservation, species diversity…it’s all here.



Ben Law

‘The Woodland Year’ is a profound book that is both practical and poetic.

  • Packed with stunning color photographs, The Woodland Year is an intimate month-by-month journey through Ben Law’s yearly cycle of work, his naturally attuned lifestyle, and his deep understanding of his woods. Each month features a different, nay ‘unique’ forest dwelling and working individual with a diary of their lives during the month in question.
  • The Woodland Year provides a fascinating insight into every aspect of sustainable woodland management, including the cycles of nature, seasonal tasks, wild food gathering, wine making, mouthwatering and useful recipes, coppice crafts, round-pole timber-frame eco-building (pioneered by Ben), nature conservation, species diversity, tree profiles, and the use of horses for woodland work.
  • It describes a way of life that is economically and ecologically viable and sets a new standard for managing our woods in a low-impact, sustainable way. As such, it holds some of the fundamental keys to how we can achieve a lower-carbon society.

Hardbound 172 pages.
