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:
Cone production of Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) in stands undergoing transformation to continuous cover forestry
by Victoria Stokes
QJF April 2013, Vol. 107, No. 2
Stand-level cone production was assessed in young even-aged Douglas fir plantations undergoing transformation to continuous cover forestry. Ground-based counts of fallen cones were carried out at three sites for five to six consecutive years. At each site stands were thinned to different target basal areas using either ‘frame tree’ thinning to convert the stand to continuous cover forestry, or standard management table thinning to maintain an even-aged structure. There were large differences in cone production between sites. … The predicted increase in hot dry summer conditions in Britain is likely to favour increased cone production of Douglas fir trees.
