Oak tells a story

Oak tells a story - published articleI have co-authored an article with the Head of Environmental Change at Forest Research, James Morison, about the science behind the OneOak project that I lead for the Sylva Foundation.

It tells of the extraordinary scientific stories behind what has become one the most studied trees in Britain.  We explain the tree measuring, laser scanning, volume and weight work, the calculation of embodied carbon, dendrochronology studies, and wood footprinting.

The article is published in the Chartered Forester, a magazine for professional foresters and arboriculturists.  However, anyone can download the article for free from the Sylva Foundation.
