New Forests publishes original papers on fundamental and applied aspects of afforestation and reforestation for an international audience of scientists and practitioners. Articles discuss reproduction of trees and forests originating from seed, seedlings or coppice for resource protection, timber production, and agro-forestry. Coverage includes natural and artificial methods of regeneration and all stand structures from even-aged to uneven-aged. Topics include silviculture, plant physiology, genetics, biotechnology, ecology, economics, protection, and management of all stages of afforestation and reforestation.

The Editor-in-Chief is Douglass F. Jacobs, Purdue University, USA.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
