The Autumn Workshop 2018 was the tenth workshop event since the official launching of Forest Ecosystems (FE) in 2014. It was also the first workshop since FE obtained its initial impact factor (2.426). These workshops, organized twice each year by our Editorial Office, are important highlights in the continuous development of the journal. These events provide excellent opportunities for widening our network of friends and collaborators, and for strengthening forest research cooperation around the world.
