List of forestry journals

The Transactions of the Royal Scottish Arboricultural Society started publication in 1858.[1] The society is now called the Royal Scottish Forestry Society and the journal was renamed Scottish Forestry but the numbering continues unbroken so that volume 68 was started in 2014.[2]

This list includes representative academic, peer-reviewed journals in forestry, forest science and related fields. Included are several historic but still-publishing journals of forestry, traditional scientific forestry journals, and several newer, open-access journals. More than 180 forestry journals were being published in 2008.[3]
