The Forestry Commission Journal was introduced as a way to communicate information on a wide range of topics which could not be communicated through 'ordinary official channels' and was intended to be a means of exchanging the opinions and experiences of all members of the staff. The introduction to this first Journal states that:

'All noteworthy observations in forestry matters made in the field should be recorded. It is well to remember that original observations on things which are new, uncommon, or even merely interesting, are always of value and if recorded may one day prove of considerable importance'.

This first Journal includes information on: Loss caused by frost-lifting; Protection of seedlings from frost; Foresters’ schools; Training of foremen; Notes on co-ordination work; Afforestation in the U.S.A.; Report on research and experimental work; Peat research; Notes from the Divisions; Notes and queries; Abstracts of articles in current periodicals.
