Handbooks and magazines

BTCV On-line Shop and Handbooks


The BTCV handbooks are not cheap, nor are they recently written, but they offer invaluable practical guidance on how to actually perform basic operations, such as cutting down a small tree, sharpening a bill hook, or constructing a fence.


Forestry Commission Publications

Forestry CommissionThe Forestry Commission publish a wide range of books, reports and leaflets covering all aspects of forestry. These include information about grants, about felling regulations, and about tree diseases. They are nearly all either available on-line, or free, or both. .They are mostly geared towards commercial foresters, but many of these are also useful for the smaller woodland owner.
