Forest Enterprise Scotland is the government agency that’s responsible for managing Scotland's National Forest Estate.

The work we do is extremely varied and goes far beyond what many people think of as traditional forestry. As well as sustainable timber production, you're just as likely to find us protecting important habitats for wildlife, working with local communities, or making it easier for visitors to enjoy the great outdoors.

By contributing to Scotland's Scottish Government’s Open Data Strategy, health and wellbeing, education and community development, and by protecting our natural and cultural heritage, our work has the potential to benefit every person in Scotland.
