Part memoir, part fascinating account of Ireland’s native woodlands – an inspiring story of hope.

Ecologist Richard Nairn has spent a lifetime studying – and learning from – nature. When an opportunity arose for him to buy a small woodland filled with mature native trees beside a fast-flowing river, he set about understanding all its moods and seasons, discovering its wildlife secrets and learning how to manage it properly. Wildwoods is a fascinating account of this woodland over a typical year. Along the way, Richard visits native woodlands throughout Ireland, uncovering the ancient roles of trees in Irish life, examining lost skills such as coppicing and exploring new uses of woodlands for forest schools, foraging, rewilding and capturing carbon. Ultimately, Wildwoods inspires all of us to pay attention to what nature can teach us.

‘A book to inspire anyone who wants Ireland to grow more Irish trees.’
Michael Viney, Irish author, artist and broadcaster
