Published for the Ecological Parks Trust. A book intended as a reference source for those involved in creating City Nature Parks. It includes practical advice on tree and shrub management, including, for example, a table of workloads involved in coppicing at four different woodland sites. The line drawings of waders (the boots, not the birds) are probably not necessary to anyone with a serious interest in this work, but on the whole this seems to be a practical and useful volume. Condition: The book is firm and sound, with bright pages, but with a little bumping to the corners of the boards and with a tear in the front of the otherwise very good dust jacket.
