Heartwood challenges the entrenched view that when it comes to forests, one is either a conservationist or a profiteer. Forest scientist Rowan Reid draws on over twenty years of experience and study to offer a third way: where growing trees for profit can have a positive environmental impact.

He challenges the ideological poles that dominate the debate and offers a scientific view on how anyone with the necessary land and time can grow their own trees and profit from them while improving the soil, water and ecosystem.

Rowan also shares the personal story and family history that lead him to his revolutionary new approach. He shares his passion for native trees and provides the practical information that readers will need to understand and grow trees of their own.

Australia's Future must be a Forest Future

I love this book, as it combines practical advice on how to make a living from trees, and at the same time protecting and improving the environment. These two are not exclusive, a fact that is often overlooked. There is so much information and scientific evidence in "Heartwood", but the book is never boring to read and the pictures are beautiful. I hope Australia's future will be a forest future, where all creatures can find a place to survive and thrive.

Practical Science

Real practical science presented by an academic who grows trees. This is not your average "trees-are-mysterious-wonders" type of book. This is for practical people who want to grow trees to create a more sustainable future. You can love trees and cut them down.
