a diary of woodland events, entertainingly described Review by Chris Hughes, Association of Professional Foresters Newsletter
Review
Not a dry reference book ... it is more a diary of woodland events, entertainingly described and forming almost a microcosm of the wider forestry world ... laced with humour and anecdote. Here then is a highly readable book packed with useful fact, humour and reminiscence. It would appeal to foresters, farmers, woodland owners, in fact anyone with an interest in forestry who is weary of textbooks and enjoys a good fireside read.

Review
How anyone, after reading this book, could not have a hankering to own and work a woodland is beyond me.

both highly informative and a joy to read Review by Maddy Harland, editor Permaculture magazine
Review
In 1985, Julian Evans fulfilled every forester's ambition and bought his own wood with his wife and brother-in-law. A Wood Of Our Own, is his personal story of how he acquired his own small mixed woodland in north Hampshire, how he, his family and friends care for it using ancient and modern skills, and the drama of two great storms. The observations are beautifully detailed, the stories are engaging and the book is full of useful information for woodlanders and natural historians alike. There is a magical atmosphere that runs throughout, a mixture of practical knowledge, anecdote and a passion for woodlands, enhanced by fine line drawings, that makes it both highly informative and a joy to read.
