Alternative tree species

The RFS has published 15 papers in the Quarterly Journal of Forestry on alternative tree speces which land managers may consider suitable for current local site conditions and the projected climate. We are immensley grateful to the late Dr Peter Savill and his co-authors Drs Scott Wilson, Bill Mason and Richard Jinks for this valuable collection of papers.
