SilviFuture coverage March 2014
SilviFuture – the network promoting novel forest species – continues to go from strength to strength. The number of records of stands of trees stands at 873 today.
Many of these records have been provided by government research agency Forest Research, supported by Forestry Commission England, Forestry Commission Scotland and Natural Resources Wales. ClimateXChange supported the collection of data in Scotland and a short promotional film (see below).
The project partners are keen that more private woodland owners share information about stands of unusual or novel forest species. Why not visit the website to learn more about the project and how you could help shape a resilient future for Britain’s forests?

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.
