  • My first month as an Assistant Forest Manager

    Tree improvement charity Future Trees Trust with funding from the Patsy Wood Trust and the Royal Forestry Society, are collaborating to deliver the Patsy Wood Scholarship. James Cryer, who recently completed an MSc Environmental and Forest Management at the University of Aberdeen, is the second recipient and is working with independent forestry consultant William Hamer working mainly in Hampshire and Berkshire. Here he talks about his first month in post.

  • Building with and living in timber

    Pennerley Permaculture owners Jon & Cheryl Kean live and work 1000 feet up on the site of an old lead mine at Stiperstones, Shropshire, close to the Welsh borders. Their mission to build three sustainable timber homes on the site led to a search for UK suppliers, not always successfully, and raised a number of challenges discussed here.
