Thetford Forest is the largest coniferous forest in South England, planted on marginal land just over 100 years ago. While the climate is globally mild, it lies in the country’s frontier of increasing drought risk, and is characterized by extremes and high variability of edaphic conditions. It has experienced large-scale pathogen outbreak, and the forest stands are facing other pressures such as very high densities of deer. What underlies some of the problems also makes Thetford forest a great experimental site: even-aged pine monocultures planted across a range of sites, trialing of many new tree species, plans for management systems transition and large-scale habitat improvements. This is an area in transition and have more questions than ever before, to interpret fundamental site characteristics and their trends in recent years, and to understand impacts of the management interventions. N deposition is one example of a relatively new factor we need to understand and incorporate into our decision making. We are particularly interested in the interaction of N deposition with other factors such as soil pH, water availability, pathogen levels. The interactions of the individual factors are indeed the core challenge to applying individual research findings better in our operational planning.
