Communication and consultations

Forestry Commission Scotland carries out a very diverse range of work on behalf of the Scottish government and the Scottish people. We share what we're doing in our news releases, publications and on social media. We also hold public consultations to enable the public to have input into our plans and strategies. 

We want you to be involved in the work we do and have the opportunity to let us know what you think about how we are supporting and managing the forests of Scotland.
