SilviFuture – comments

As part of a number of developments to the SilviFuture network we have added a facility to allow people to share their thoughts and experiences on novel forest tree species.

Commenting tools are provided for each of the 69 species currently listed in the database. The commenting tool is presented on each page dedicated to a specific species, thereby focussing discussion on that species. They are also brought together on a single comments page so that readers can easily view the latest comments from contributors.

We encourage everyone with some experience in growing these species to share it with other woodland owners and managers. Feel free also to share information about a species that you may have read or seen.



  1. Try Notophagus species, and for the edges of clearings, alongside a footpath, Arbutus menzezei. The Hilliers catalogue will furnish descriptions.

  2. Sweet chestnut is a species extensively grown in forests and used for doors,stairs etc in all parts of Italy. It’s also wonderful for bees, so doesn’t necessarily need to be coppiced.
