UK Forestry Standard (UKFS)

UK Forestry Standard front coverThe UK Forestry Standard (UKFS) is the national reference standard for managing our forests to meet needs now without hindering future generations from meeting theirs.

The UKFS recognises Scotland’s forests have a range of objectives: environmental, economic and social. It defines standards and requirements, provides a basis for regulation and monitoring and sets guidelines for sustainable forest management.

The UKFS and its guidelines are endorsed by all national and devolved Governments within the UK.
