Respected Worldwide – Since 1925
Official Journal of the Canadian Institute of Forestry

The Canadian Institute of Forestry has published The Forestry Chronicle, a professional and scientific forestry journal, since 1925. It is published bi-monthly in print as well as electronically for members of the Institute and subscribers throughout the world.

The Forestry Chronicle is published to provide information to forest practitioners about professional and scientific management of forests and their resources. The Forestry Chronicle provides forest practitioners in Canada and around the world with a means to communicate with their peers in the professional community. In addition to invited and submitted professional and scientific papers, the various Departments of The Forestry Chronicle (e.g., the Guest Editorial, President’s Perspective, Personals, Institute Affairs and school and professional association news and conference listings), record and encourage comment on significant developments of general interest in Canadian and international forestry.
