The Woodland Homestead: How to Make Your Land More Productive and Live More Self-Sufficiently in the Woods
Paperback - English

Put your wooded land to work This comprehensive manual shows you how to use your woodlands to produce everything from wine and mushrooms to firewood and livestock feed. You'll learn how to take stock of your woods; use axes, bow saws, chainsaws, and other key tools; create pasture and silvopasture for livestock; prune and coppice trees to make fuel, fodder, and furniture; build living fencing and shelters for animals; grow fruit trees and berries in a woodland orchard; make syrup from birch, walnut, or boxelder trees; and much more. Whether your property is entirely or only partly wooded, this is the guide you need to make the best use of it.

...A wooded property -- even just a small one -- is full of possibilities for sustainable use. Whether your goal is to grow food, harvest wood, or support livestock, forester and homesteader Brett McLeod has the knowledge, tools, and techniques you need to get the most out of your land. You'll learn how to take stock of the forest makeup, use different axes and saws, prune and coppice trees, grow fruit and berries, build living fences, and much more. Along the way, you'll read the stories of other homesteaders who, through innovation and resourcefulness, have realized their dreams of a bountiful woodland home.
