Prior to 2007, this journal was titled the Southern African Forestry Journal. These back issues may be accessed here
. The Southern Hemisphere Forestry Journal publishes scientific articles in forest science and management of fast-growing, planted or natural forests in the Southern Hemisphere and the tropics. Papers are also encouraged on related disciplines such as environmental aspects of forestry, social forestry, agroforestry, forest engineering and management as well as the goods and services that are derived from forests as a whole. Articles published by the journal are of value to forest scientists, resource managers and society at large. The journal particularly encourages contributions from South America, Africa and tropical/sub-tropical Australasia and Asia.
