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 his journey over a typical year. Along the way, he uncovers the ancient roles of trees in Irish life, he examines lost skills such as coppicing and he explores new uses of woodlands for forest schools, foraging, and rewilding. 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

Author: Richard Nairn, published by Gill Books, 304 pages, paperback format.  Dimensions: 23.5cm x 15cm.
