Hamish Mackintosh

I currently work in the British forestry sector as an independent contractor. I have a PhD from the University of Edinburgh which focussed on improving the silviculture of Continuous Cover Forestry (CCF).

My areas of expertise are CCF and forest mensuration/survey techniques. Recent projects have involved collecting site data from around Scotland for the Silvifuture project (http://www.silvifuture.org.uk/), producing information to populate webpages on long term CCF experiments and measuring provenance trials of minor conifer species throughout Scotland, England and Wales.
