June is Forest History month in Canada.

In celebration, the Canadian Institute of Forestry has just published a special forest history theme issue of The Forestry Chronicle.

You can find an electronic copy of this open access issue right here.

Guest edited by Mark Kuhlberg of Laurentian University, this issue contains a mix of articles by some authors familiar as NiCHE regulars and some new faces from the forestry community. The CIF thanks the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) and the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) for supporting the issue.
