register a woodland • suggest a woodland • become a Book Patron


The Forest Guide is a project of author Gabriel Hemery who is working on a series of guidebooks featuring the woodlands of Britain, from the largest forest to smallest copse. The idea is to celebrate their beauty, purpose, history, current nature, and ownership. Ultimately the author aims to reconnect society with the natural world. The first of the guides will be published by Bloomsbury Wildlife in 2023.

The Forest Guide by Gabriel Hemery

Get involved by registering your woodland if you’re a landowner, or suggesting your favourite site if you’re a member of the public.

You can also support the book by becoming a Book Patron, and in return have your name in the book and receive a special signed copy. You may also ask that the Book Patron is gifted to someone else, in which case their name will be listed instead. You can even request a gift certificate so that you have something to give while your giftee waits for the book to be published.
