The second issue of the 2020 Journal of the Icelandic Forestry Association (Skógræktarritið) has been published and posted to its subscribers. The issue contains a range of articles on diverse aspects of forestry, including outdoor education, the Tree of the Year 2020, the effect of pine wolly aphid on the survival and growth of scots pine in Iceland, whittling, mixed forestry, the foundation of Heiðmörk, the distribution and impact of broom moth on young forests and forestry statistics for 2019.

Skógræktarritið (formerly Ársrit Skógræktarfélag Íslands) is the only regular journal about forestry in Iceland and the main forum of writing by Icelandic foresters and others interested in the various aspects of forestry. The content of the publication is therefore very diverse and extensive.
