James Cup Winners 2018 – 2019: Forest Resilience

The RFS has published four papers on forest resilience by Jonathan Spencer MBE, former Head of Planning and Environment for Forestry England.

These papers can be found below and explain the ecological basis of forest resilience, how history has shaped species composition and forest ecology and propose changes to forestry policy and practice to increase resilience.

We are immensely grateful to Jonathan Spencer, and his co-author Alison Field, for this valuable collection of papers.
