For 100 years, Scotland’s national forests have provided the country with a rich source of timber.
Today, the story is one of diversification – Scotland’s forests are managed as a productive, recreational and environmental resource.
These are not competing interests. In fact, careful planning at a national and local level, involving communities and partners, is bringing together complementary objectives and helping to shape Scotland’s forests for future generations.
