Spring/summer issue 2020: Climate Change
Welcome to the Spring 2020 issue of Reforesting Scotland, which looks at Climate Change. As we completed this issue, the nation entered week 3 of coronavirus lockdown and we have no idea when it will be able to be physically printed. As a result, we have decided to make a digital version available free to everyone in the meantime.
At the bottom of this page there is an online version of the whole Journal. Articles consider which species of trees and where to plant them, woodland and soil carbon, the National Ecological Network and more. There’s a welcome return from Buildings of the Forest, which looks at David Blair’s latest roundhouse. Letter from… considers silvopastoralism in Spain and Artists in Wood features the riven-oak furniture of Adrian McCurdy. Plus news, book reviews and the Last Word on forest plastics.
