What can woodland owners do about soil erosion and depletion?  We look at the launch of the Sustainable Soil Alliance, which provides some ideas.

Rich is building a timber-framed barn using traditional techniques as far as possible, and all from wood he has felled and milled himself. Read his account of how it’s all going.

Finally, there are bargains to be had if you are thinking about a woodland course. Plumpton College is offering 25% off a selection of their short courses and the Woodland Skills Centre offers 10-15% of their autumn offerings.
