Action for Scotland's native woods

Our native woodlands are one of the most characteristic elements of the Scottish landscape - from the rugged Caledonian pinewoods and birchwoods in Highland glens to the remnant ancient broadleaved woods in Borders cleuchs.

They are home to many species of animals and plants - from wildcats to wood ants and mighty trees to tiny mosses, lichens and fungi.

The aim of this booklet is to encourage more people, and especially land managers and owners, to think about opportunities to manage and create native woodlands.
