Oliver Rackham died at age 75 on 12 February 2015

Oliver will be greatly missed.  An inspiration to me and many others.  I cannot help thinking that despite his many books, papers, lectures and talks that what we have been left with is the tip of the iceberg. The loss of Oliver's wealth of knowledge and experience is to the detriment of all of us. We have to carry on...let's whack bush!

Oliver: April 2014

Oliver Rackham

There is a draft paper on Writtle Forest (Esssex) Oliver sent me when I was part of the campaign to 'Stop the M12' back in 1992.  Tell me if you have read this one (apologies for the poor quality).
