Despite participatory efforts and visions of more democratic and sustainable forestry, local communities and knowledge holders continue to be over-looked in forest-related decision-making.
In this special issue, we focus on knowledge practices as key in individuals and societies’ interactions with forests, and in the reproduction and naturalisation of authority within forestry. We examine historical and current forestry knowledge practices and discuss how these can be garnered for a transformation towards more sustainable relations between people and trees in the landscape.
