Out now! Our April Quarterly Journal of Forestry (QJF) featuring articles on ash, Mediterranean trees in Britain, our squirrel survey, how forestry novices turned a neglected woodland into an award winning site, and the classification of ancient woodlands.

April 2014 QJF

Read Scott McG. Wilson on the progress of an independent study evaluating key tree species and agroforestry systems from the Mediterranean for climate-resilient use in lowland Britain.

Sarah Walters describes how, as forestry novices, she and husband Stephen Briggs went about turning a neglected site into the award-winning conservation woodland Alvecote Wood.

Terrey Mabbett considers what might fill gaps left by Common Ash as he surveys an established ash wood, and Roy Vickery recalls folklore associated with ash trees.

Ben Lennon looks at the concept of ‘ancient woodland’ and how it is used, and potentially misused.

RFS Education manager Phil Tanner outlines a new Conifers for Colleges programme which is soon to be launched, and our first Intern Ian Reynolds recounts his experiences with the RFS!

Also included are the Directors’ Report and Accounts, our AGM agenda, news from around our Divisions and members’ letters.
