Forestry Commission Scotland's (FCS) mission is to protect and expand Scotland's forests and woodlands and increase their value to society and the environment.

The Scottish Forestry Strategy is the Scottish Executive’s framework for taking forestry forward through the first half of this century and beyond. It sets out a vision of a forestry sector that is diverse and strong; in tune with the environment; employing many people in a wide range of enterprises; and providing the many other services and benefits that people need, now and for the future.

The Scottish Forestry Strategy (2006) (PDF 3.1Mb) was launched on 9th October 2006.
