Forestry Horizons was conceived by Sir Martin Wood and Dr Gabriel Hemery in 2006. Initially established as a project of the Oxford Trust, the project was transferred to the Sylva Foundation in 2009, and it now constitures a part of Sylva's Science programme.
Forestry Horizons is the UK's only dedicated and independent forestry think-tank.
We undertake independent strategic research and support applied research aiming to foster sustainable forest management. We make all our research work freely available as far as we are able. Some peer-review papers may only be accessible via direct subscription with the publisher. Our research database is linked to the Global Forest Information Service.

Forestry Horizons is led by Sylva's Chief Executive Dr Gabriel Hemery CEnv FICFor, and supported by Alistair Yeomans MICFor, our Chief Operating Officer. Much of the research undertaken is in collaboration with other individuals and organisations. We believe this leads to strong and effective research.
