‘A Simple Guide to Planting Oaks in Australia’ offers exciting and amazing tips on the importance of oaks and how to plant them successfully ‘

Author Richard Browne expresses his sturdy and prolific fervor for nature as he pens a profound and delightful anthology in A Simple Guide to Planting Oaks in Australia. This is the author’s long dream to write a book about his passion–oak trees and to share to the world how he was captivated by its grandeur and mystery.

This volume will reveal Browne’s 10 years of collecting and planting oaks. It all began after arriving from Ireland and realising what to do with his six acres of bare land. Missing the beautiful and colorful changing of the seasons and the distinctive smell of the deciduous woods that he had enjoyed during his childhood, thus he decided to collect and plant oaks from different parts of the world. Through time, Browne studied and researched as much knowledge as could be found. Browne believes that oaks have played a great part in the evolution of culture. It is also the most obvious form of flora and fauna that has been quite advantageous to the Australian landscape, soil and wildlife rather than being detrimental like so many of the other impulsive imports. This book aims to provide a simple guide to the things people didn’t know, but probably should, about the oaks.

A Simple Guide to Planting Oaks in Australia is a book that showcases the author’s long years of passion for oaks. It will also help gardeners, oak enthusiasts and land owners learn many interesting new facts and method about oak planting and collecting.
