As Editor-in-Chief of Forests, I am pleased to announce the 2017 Outstanding Reviewer Awards of Forests. Careful and timely peer reviews are the foundation for all successful journals. We are pleased to be able to recognize a few outstanding reviewers and offer them a nominal cash award for their exemplary service to Forests and, in turn, to the broader scientific community.
