The 2020 edition of Woodland Heritage’s annual journal has launched – bringing it catalogue to 25 editions, dating back to its first in 1996.

This year’s copy, free to all Woodland Heritage members, includes stories such as Forestry Journal looking back over its first-quarter century, two quite different articles on wild service trees, a celebration of the life of forestry academic Dr Peter Savill, and an array of stories that look at how timber can be used: whether in Cornish gigs, stunning buildings, unique pieces of furniture, or as veneer.

This latest selection of articles has been added to the hundreds published by the charity, with all back copies of the journal now accessible to members on the Woodland Heritage website (

The charity is seeking help in indexing this expanding record so as to allow for information to be easily found.

“Student membership of Woodland Heritage is at record levels currently, so now is the time to make this information resource as easy as possible to use, for the benefit of tomorrow’s foresters,” said Woodland Heritage’s Guy Corbett-Marshall. “We would love to hear from anyone who would like to help index our articles.”
