The theme of our Autumn/Winter issue is ‘By Leaves We Learn’ and we take a look at various aspects of education and learning outdoors, including the Shieling Project, Upstart Scotland and Forestry Ambassadors. Other subjects include the impact of herbivores on the forest understorey and attitudes to wolves. Regular features include Buildings of the Forest on huts for management; Beasts of the Forest on wild boar;  and Food from the Forest on mushroom logs. Artists in Wood looks at the Peebles Wood Market and Eamonn Wall explains how to prune broadleaved trees. Plus news, book reviews and more!
