About the Journal


The aim of the journal is to publish high quality articles and reviews on all aspects of research, practice and policy that inform and promote the sustainable management of forests and trees.


The journal is inclusive of all subjects, geographical zones and study locations, including trees in urban environments, plantations and natural forests. We welcome papers that consider economic, environmental and social factors and, in particular, studies that take an integrated approach to sustainable management. In considering suitability for publication, attention is given to the originality of contributions and their likely impact on policy and practice, as well as their contribution to the development of knowledge.

Special Issues - each year one edition of Forestry will be a Special Issue and will focus on one subject in detail; this will usually be by publication of the proceedings of an international meeting.

The Silvicultural Prize

This Prize is awarded annually to the author(s) of the best paper published in Forestry on the subject of silviculture, as defined below, during the preceding three years.

For purposes of the award 'silviculture' is defined as the theory and practice of controlling the establishment, composition and growth of forests and shall include the relationship of tree growth to environmental and economic factors and the effects on tree growth of other plants, micro-organisms, insects, birds and other animals.
