Scotland's Forestry Strategy

Scottish Forestry Strategy 2019Scotland's Forestry Strategy sets out the Scottish Government's 50-year vision for Scotland’s forests and woodlands and provides a 10-year framework for action.

It was developed in full consultation with a broad range of organisations, which helped identify three objectives for the period 2019-2029:

> to increase the contribution of forests and woodlands to Scotland’s sustainable and inclusive economic growth

> to improve forest resilience and contribute to a healthy and high quality environment

> to increase recreational use of woodlands and enable more people to improve their health, well-being and life chances

The Strategy is a key element of the new, fully devolved arrangements for forestry in Scotland.
