The Ash and The Beech – The drama of woodland change – Richard Mabey. Paperback (rrp £9.99). New /unused condition. “From Ash die-back to the Great Storm of 1987 to Dutch Elm disease, our much loved woodlands seem to be under constant threat from a procession of natural challenges. Just when we need trees most, to help combat global warming and to provide places of retreat for us and our wildlife, they seem at greatest peril. But these dangers force us to reconsider the narratives we construct about trees and the roles we press on them”. Now a classic from one of our foremost writers on our natural world.
