About Forestry Commission Scotland

Scotland's forests and woodlands are a vital natural asset. If they're looked after well, they bring huge benefits for Scotland's economy, people and environment. That's where we come in.
Our core purpose is to deliver multiple benefits by promoting the sustainable management of trees, woods and forests across Scotland.

Supporting Scotland's forests

We support all of Scotland's forests through guidance, grants and regulations, and by shaping and implementing forestry policy. Find out more about:

Managing your forests

We are also responsible for managing the National Forest Estate – your forests – for the benefit of communities, visitors, businesses and wildlife.

Forest Enterprise Scotland is the part of Forestry Commission Scotland that's responsible for managing the estate.
