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”.

Colonising rowan saplings escape from winter sheep grazing
by David Welch
QJF October 2013 Vol 107 No 4
Seasonal regimes of sheep grazing were experimentally imposed on moorland that adjoined a strip of riverside woodland in Derbyshire. It was found that protection from grazing from April to September allowed rowan colonisation, but the saplings were then severely grazed down in the next six-month winter periods. Many saplings recovered in the following six months free from grazing, and 14 years after the start of the experiment some reached sufficient size in summer to escape from leader damage in the next winter. The minimum height observed for this was 50cm, and no saplings taller than 1m suffered winter leader loss.
