Reforesting Scotland Journal 54

Autumn/Winter 2016: ‘Upstream, downstream’

The theme of this issue of Reforesting Scotland is ‘Upstream, downstream’ and we take a look at the downstream impacts of upland management. Articles look at flooding, farming, driven grouse shooting and the montane scrub habitat. Some regular features relate to the theme too, with ‘Beasts of the Forest’ on the mountain hare and ‘A letter from Norway’ dispelling some myths about upland regeneration. Plus Artists in Wood, Buildings of the Forest, My Favourite Stove, the continuing discussion over Ardvar and more.
