  • Forest Research Tree Species and Provenance Database. Link here.
    Information on over 60 tree species that are either widely grown in British forests at the present time or which could play an increasing role in the future, focusing on those species which could be expected to produce usable timber in British conditions.
  • SilviFutures – Link here.
    SilviFuture is a network established to promote and share knowledge about novel forest species across Britain. It is a tool for forest owners, managers and those with an interest in timber. The online database includes information on a number of “alternative” and “novel” species that previously were only considered of minor importance. Given the need to diversify the forest estate, to enhance ecological resilience, many of these species may play a more important role in the future. The database is based on material produced by Forest Research on species characteristics and provenance selection.
