A book about the natural history of some of our most iconic British woods.

The National Trust manages hundreds of woods, covering over 60,000 acres of England and Wales. They include many of the oldest woodlands in the land and some of the oldest living things of any kind - trees that are thousands of years old.

This book is a celebration of our woods - from the Forest of Dean to Epping, from Hatfield Forest to Sherwood. This books covers the different trees that give them their characters, of the plants and animals that inhabit them, and the way their appearance changes throughout the seasons.
