Reforesting Scotland Journal 55

Spring/Summer 2017: Wild Harvests

The theme of this issue of Reforesting Scotland is ‘Wild Harvests’ and we take a look at a range of wild harvests, including forest microbes and materials for tanning hides, as well as various aspects of foraging and wild food collection. We also celebrate the end of the four-year StarTree project. Some regular features relate to the theme too, with ‘Food from the Forest’ on wild garlic and ‘Last word’ considering what is wild and what is cultivated. Plus project reports from the Forest Policy Group’s Birnam conference and on Simwood, a project to bring more products to market, Artists in Wood, My Favourite Stove, and more.
