This work covers the uses of wood in England between 1580 and 1660, specifically which species were used for which objects. Not all wood was from English woodland, other wood coming from hedgerows, orchards, scrub on commons and in some cases imported woods such as coniferous species and cork. The use of the wood and bark of trees is considered but not the fruit or flowers or medicinal uses or the production of by products such as turpentine which could fill volumes all of their own.
