The first issue of the 2021 Journal of the Icelandic Forestry Association (Skógræktarritið) has been published and posted to its subscribers. The issue contains, as usual, a range of articles on diverse aspects of forestry, including the use of poplar cuttings in forestry, the tallest oaks in Iceland, different tree combinations in forestry, forestry at Skálholt, forests as carbon sinks, an anthropological study of the forestry associations, generational shifts in forests, forestry in Reyðarfjörður and the supernatural side of forests.
The cover picture is a painting titled “Gróður jarðar” (Earth vegetation) by the Icelandic artist Tolli.
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.
