“Talis Kalnars was a pioneer of ‘continuous cover’ forestry in Britain, writes Phil Morgan. His woodlands were not only beautiful but profitable, as he nurtured the ‘natural capital’ of the forest ecosystem, and only harvested the dividend of high value timber.”

Phil Morgan (President ProSilva Europe, past Chair of the CCFG UK group) has recently written an article on forester Talis Kalnars who also helped ProSilva Ireland with advice on Close-to-Nature continuous cover forestry management.
