Living With Trees by Robin Walter
Trees and woods offer great potential for rebuilding our wider relationship with nature, reinforcing local identity and sustaining wildlife. Living with Trees is a powerful call for more trees in our lives. It is a cornucopia of artwork, useful information, poetry and new ideas: a book that is both practical and inspirational. It aims to re-engage individuals and communities with their local trees and woods, and demonstrates how caring for trees and woods can enhance local biodiversity alongside community cohesion and well-being.
