Working with Wood
Humans have been working wood for at least 5000 years and until relatively recently producing most everyday needs from tools to utensils, building and fuel for cooking. Wood is infinitely renewable when properly managed and every tree species has its own unique property of use.
The interest in caring for woodlands increases year on year, driven perhaps by the balance of mental challenge, aesthetic appreciation and steady physical work that can result in great satisfaction for the worker. The sense too of being a custodian of an ancient craft drives us into the woods to create with care and consideration for trees, and for those who seek to follow in our footsteps.
