Rodney leading a session at the CCFG conference on Understanding daylight in the context of Continuous Cover Forestry, Westonbirt Arboretum, 2009.

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.
