This book follows Robert Penn and his journey with his Ash tree. From selecting and felling the tree to all the products that came from it, also covering the old skills and craftsmen that still survive to date.
He also produce a TV series Tales From A Wild Wood about a year trying to regenerate a overgrown woodland. I found this very inspiring due to the fact it mirrors a project I am doing.
I should mention he also has a passion for bicycles and has done some challenging trips notable one in the Andes.
He can be followed on @RobPennWildwood
