The man who made things out of trees

Book of the week this week is about a man who decided to fell an ash tree and see how many things could be made out of it.  He describes the felling in a most poetic but still practical way.  It's very accessible to lay people but satisfyingly correct in its descriptions of all the crafts involved in making the 'things'.  There are still two episodes to go on Radio 4 from 9.45 till 10 o'clock.  It's being read brilliantly by Anton Lesser.  You can hear all five episodes on bbc radio i-player.
