The Glasgow Woods are a collection of three woodland areas managed by Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) within Glasgow. The three woodland areas are Auchenshuggle, to the south east of the city; Drumchapel to the north west and Easterhouse in the north east. We manage Drumchapel and Easterhouse on behalf of Glasgow City Council whilst Auchenshuggle is managed and owned by FCS. 

The land management plan for these woodland areas was approved in October 2015 and covers the period from 2015 to 2025.
