Archie Miles celebrates the Ash Tree at the Eleventh Hour


Renowned tree writer and photographer, and Woodland Heritage member, Archie Miles has been inspired to create a beautiful illustrated monograph about our ash trees before ash dieback and the almost certain arrival of emerald ash borer in the near future erase the vast majority of them from the British landscape.

Archie was motivated to make a comprehensive study of the ash when he reflected upon how little was done to record the great elms in the landscape before the devastating effects of Dutch elm disease some fifty years ago. Three years ago he set out to find the funding to make the book a reality and with support from Woodland Trust and the Association of AONBs this has now been made possible.


“ASH” is a lavishly illustrated hardback book (216pp, 300 x 250mm) printed on 170gsm FSC accredited paper. Archie will be signing and numbering 500 copies out of the edition of 4,000. To register interest in purchasing a copy and a chance of receiving one of the limited signed copies, after the launch date of 19th September, please email him on

You will be contacted in September with an invoice (£30.00 inc. p&p) and upon receipt of payment your book will be shipped to you.
