    [Archive] A systems approach to forest operations planning and control

    Lead Author: M.A. Pritchard (Ed)
    Computer-based systems are now commonplace in most forestry operating environments. One of the inherent features of forestry everywhere is the amount of data collected over long periods of time. Information technology has made the storage and analysis of these data a cost effective reality. Never before has the forest manager been better placed to call […]

    [Archive] Natural regeneration of broadleaves

    Lead Author: J. Evans
    Natural regeneration can broadly be defined as raising a forest crop without resorting to planting, direct sowing or coppicing. It is the random nature of exactly where young trees spring up on a site and sometimes of the species which grow that marks out natural regeneration, not freedom from man’s influence. Indeed, many naturally regenerated […]

    [Archive] Farming and forestry – proceedings of a conference held at Loughborough University 1986

    Lead Author: G.R. Hatfield (Ed.)
    The Farming and Forestry Conference at Loughborough University in September 1986 was held as a result of the dual realisation that something needed to be done, and soon, to cut back and bring under control the over-production of key agricultural products, and secondly that farm woodlands provided one of the few realistic alternatives. The conference […]

    [Archive] Forestry section proceedings from the British Association for the Advancement of Science Annual Meeting 1986

    Lead Author: G.C. Barnes (Ed.)
    The paper explores the contribution that science has made to forestry and woodland management and looks at the scientific prospects and limitations for the future. It explains the reasons why Britain has become so low in self-sufficiency of wood products and charts the steps successive Governments have taken to change this, starting with the creation […]

    [Archive] Choice of seed origins for the main forest species in Britain

    Lead Author: R. Lines
    Choice of seed origin can be a very critical stage in forest management, in some cases resulting either in flourishing plantations or else in complete failure. This Bulletin is directed at both manager and researchers. The former are succinctly guided to appropriate seed origins for their site conditions and objectives, and equally importantly warned off […]
