Hardback,(214 pages) Published in 1995 by Farming Press Books, distributed in North America by Diamond Farm enterprises. ISBN 0 85236 289 7.
With a foreword by Derek Wanless, this is a handbook for those interested in planting, tending and harvesting willow and other woody biomass crops for energy. ‘Wood is the purest fuel in the world’ and there are all kinds of benefits from cultivation of short rotation coppice – such as flood prevention, water re-cycling, sewage recycling, buffer-strips to prevent fertilizer run-off polluting water-ways; provision of wildlife habitat – and basket making uses the same type of willow. The book is generously illustrated with photographs and is of a very practical nature.
