Queen Elizabeth Forest Park (QEFP) is the first site in the Climate Ready Forest network; a partnership between FC Scotland, Forest Research, ClimateXChange and private sector collaborators, which aims to support the forest sector in Scotland become more resilient to climate change.
This 200 year partnership project will transform the Great Trossachs Forest landscape from exploited, heavily grazed land and plantation forestry to a more natural mix of resilient habitats, helping wildlife adapt to climate change.
I currently work in the British forestry sector as an independent contractor. I have a PhD from the University of Edinburgh which focussed on improving the silviculture of Continuous Cover Forestry (CCF).
My areas of expertise are CCF and forest mensuration/survey techniques. Recent projects have involved collecting site data from around Scotland for the Silvifuture project (http://www.silvifuture.org.uk/), producing information to populate webpages on long term CCF experiments and measuring provenance trials of minor conifer species throughout Scotland, England and Wales.
