Publication archive

The publication archive has been created to provide digital access to titles from the Forestry Commission's back catalogue of out-of-print series. It will include, for example, Handbooks, Bulletins, Technical Papers and Journals that have been published in hardcopy since the establishment of the Forestry Commission in 1919.

You can access the archive by selecting 'Archive', and/or the archive series you are interested in, from the drop-down catalogue menu. Or you can search the archive using keyword/s (ensuring that you check the box 'Include archived publications'. Archive material returned in search results will contain the word [Archive] before the publication title and the covers of archive pdfs will be watermarked. The text of all pdf files is fully searchable using Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

Please note that the archive titles contain the original published text, which has not been amended or updated in any way to reflect developments in health and safety and forestry practice, and so will contain out-of-date material. Current guidance on sustainable forest management can be found in the main catalogue under Forestry standards and Forestry practice.
