Green Oak in Construction Peter Ross, Christopher Mettem and Andrew Holloway, TRADA Technology Ltd, 2007, £45 members, £65 non-members The authors, from Arup, TRADA Technology and the Green Oak Carpentry Company, have produced a delightful and thorough guide which includes everything you ever wanted to know about green oak. A historical overview, plus chapters on supply, environmental issues, properties of oak, and design and framing with oak, set the stage. Detailing of framing, wall sections, cladding and more is presented with clear drawings.

A selection of historic and contemporary case studies and appendices on specifying, grading and engineering design data complete a very informative book.
