Invitation: Forest Transformation and Conversion: EXEMPLARY FOREST UNITS OF UNEVEN-AGED FORESTRY IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

Please see the forest transformation and conversion event in the Czech Republic in October 2018. Due to the fact that forest transformation is a topic beyond the Czech Republic, this will be a relevant meeting for many in Ireland too.

In memory of Pro Silva founding member Rodney Helliwell (1940-2018)

Rodney was one of the original founding members of Pro Silva, a signatory of the declaration of Robanov Kot (1989), the Pro Silva founding document. It is his championing of Continuous Cover Forestry (CCF), a term he was instrumental in defining and promoting, that will stand perhaps as his greatest legacy. He was the first chairman of the Continuous Cover Forestry Group (CCFG) and was responsible for establishing a formal association with ProSilva.
