Quarterly Journal of Forestry

The Quarterly Journal of Forestry – or QJF, as it is affectionately known – enjoys a world-wide circulation with subscribers from 25 different countries; all RFS members receive it too (details below).

As a regular reader said recently:

“What I really like about the wide range of articles in the QJF is they are a level which offers something for everyone and which does not lose the amateur reader nor insult the professional one”.

Interested? Here’s a sample abstract from a recent issue:

Results of a species trial of cold tolerant eucalypts in south west England

by A.D. Leslie, M. Mencuccini, J.G. Purse and M.P. Perks

QJF January 2014 Vol 108 No 1

A trial of six cold-tolerant eucalypt species, planted in 1981 near Exeter in south west England, was assessed in 2010 for height, diameter at breast height and survival. The predicted soil moisture deficit on the site is low and it is relatively warm (AT 1662.5) and sheltered (DAMS 126), although it experienced a succession of cold winters in the six years following planting… The good cold-tolerance and growth of certain seedlots from single mother trees within provenances suggests that much of the variation in performance of all species is genetically determined at family rather than provenance level. The larger surviving trees in the trial could provide germplasm for further trials, with the possibility of later conversion of parts of the Exeter trial to seed stands.
