RFS Book Club with Isabella Tree & Charlie Burrell
RFS Book Club features interviews with well-known forestry and woodland authors about their books and invite you to join in online and ask the authors your questions. Our next Book Club is with Isabella Tree, author of "Wilding: The Return of Nature to a British Farm", accompanied by her husband, the conservationist Charlie Burrell
Isabella Tree is an award-winning author and travel writer. She lives with her husband, the conservationist Charlie Burrell, in the middle of a pioneering rewilding project in West Sussex.
In Wilding, published by Picador, she tells the fascinating story of the ‘Knepp experiment’ using free-roaming grazing animals to create new habitats for wildlife. Part gripping memoir, part fascinating account of how taking a leap of faith and ceasing unprofitable intensive farming on the heavy clay has resulted in a land which has become a functioning ecosystem again, heaving with life – all by itself.
