Beautiful engraved illustrations, clear language, step-by-step instructions for hedge-laying, and above all, passionate (at least by English standards) content, carefully curated in a pocket-sized book. My only complaint lies in the species of trees covered, which is by no means exhaustive nor specific to the Pacific Northwest. But what can you expect from a book written by a man who “planted a wood” (i.e. is from the British Isles) and is distributed globally.

Thought this would be a quick read for me. Just couldn't labor through it. Not sure if it was the writing. Not sure if it was the topic. Just wasn't sure if it was my motivation to read this waned. Just lost interest mid-read. Tried a few times, but ran out of gas. Stories were interesting. . .in pieces.However, it wasn't a page turner for me.

The cover, pages, pictures, and subject make you fall in love with the book even while just flipping through it. Needs to edit out a bit more of the pretentious parts though.
