Profile: Graham Mole

Forestry Journal:


Graham Mole started in journalism the classic way – as a junior reporter on a local weekly paper, then moving into TV and eventually ending up as a producer on investigative programmes for the national ITV network. He then switched to covering the south of England, freelancing for national papers and magazines, running a local TV station and, along the way, bumped into Forestry Journal. Towards the end of his career, he specialised in features about individuals in the forestry business, learning an awful lot at the same time. Occasionally he would drag himself away from his shedquarters in the garden next to a large wood so he could fish the world-famous chalkstreams of the South for trout, which ended up providing material for his regular national magazine column on the sport. Graham died in 2021.
