Towards robust projections of European forests under climate change
Improved understanding of climate change projections for European forests – from models to stakeholders.
Mechanical properties of naturally-regenerated Sitka spruce
An investigation into the wood properties and timber potential of naturally-regenerated Sitka spruce; whether left un-thinned or re-spaced to various stocking densities.
Peatland ecosystem services
Monitoring ecosystem services from afforested peatland and the effects of bog restoration and conversion to peatland edge woodland
Strathard: a landscape to live, work and play
This project aims to develop more sustainable and resilient land and water management plans in Strathard by taking an ecosystems approach which considers the wider impacts and benefits of a range of management plans on ecosystem services, the landscape and communities living there.
Integrated optimal rotation length modelling
Optimal rotation length model, which accounts for timber production and climate change mitigation (in terms of carbon benefits) and adaptation (in terms of windthrow risks), is developed.
Climate change impacts on insect pests associated with Sitka spruce
This project is investigating the potential impact that a changing climate may have on the insect pests associated with the UK’s most important and widely planted conifer tree species Sitka spruce.
Development of decision tools and best practice guidance for land regeneration
This page summarises the work undertaken by Forest Research in creating best practice guidance in land regeneration
SilviFuture is a network established to promote and share knowledge about novel forest species across Britain.
Forest Management Adaptation (AdaFor) 2013 -2015
Details of the Forest Management Adaption project working to ensure forests are sustainable in the future
Scientific review: cost effectiveness of forestry for climate change mitigation
This page summarises the results of Forest Research’s calculations on the potential and cost-effectiveness of UK’s forests to mitigate climate change.
