An article about the research activities undertaken in our OneOak project has been published in the Chartered Forester magazine.

Our CEO Gabriel Hemery co-wrote the article with James Morison, from the Centre for Forests and Climate Change at Forest Research, to tell the extraordinary scientific stories behind what has become one the most studied trees in Britain.  They explain the tree measuring, laser scanning, volume and weight work, the calculation of embodied carbon, dendrochronology studies, and wood footprinting.

We are very grateful to Institute of Chartered Foresters for allowing us to provide the article as a free download.

  2. This is a fascinating account of the science involved in OneOak. I read some parts twice to be sure I had grasped the numbers and ideas. It is exciting to learn the story of the tree and understand how many different people are involved in the OneOak enterprise.
    As the One Oak story progresses I become more and more interested in it. Such a visionary idea.
