Welcome to the thirty-third issue of the Continuous Cover Forestry Group Newsletter. This year we are publishing the newsletter as a series of separate pdfs. We hope it will make it easier for you to dip in and out of the newsletter and pick out articles of particular interest. It will also enable us to include more and better quality images without ending up with a large, unwieldy document.
