An important publication from the Association Futaie Irrégulière. First published in France in 2010, the 2011 edition has been translated into English by Phil Morgan. President of the UK Pro Silva Close to Nature – Continuous Cover Forestry group, CCFG.

The book presents the approach to irregular silviculture developed by a group of leading French foresters and the network of research stands they have developed to monitor this type of silviculture. The network was established twenty years ago and has now collected data over fifteen years that detail the biological, economic and environmental development of stands spanning the range of species mixtures and regions across France. The network has expanded further with research stands in England, Belgium, Luxemburg and Ireland.
Phil Helliwell in a review for the Quarterly Journal of Forestry (2012 Vol 106 No. 3), said he would regard it as the most significant book on silviculture to be published in English in the last 75 years.
