Scottish Borders Heritage Site - View item
A forest trust in Scotland was established in the nineties to champion sustainable management of forestry in Northern Scotland for the advantage of local people.
We are a charitable business limited by warranty, governed by our voluntary Board of Directors and we're answerable to a membership made up of groups and individuals from across Scotland.
We champion the creation of new woodland and renovation of current woodlands, by supporting community groups, people and common grazings with surveys of the sites, costed proposals and help with funding applications.
We aim to gain a "wood culture" in Scotland through the above work and through supporting networks of community forestry groups and wood users in our publications, yearly forum and training events.
Who can we help?
We hope to hear from groups and people who wish to get more involved in forestry management, establishment or timber utilisation. We will always hope to give advice or assistance. But priority is offered to those projects which create an apt balance of advantages for local biodiversity, finance and community.
If you have any queries about forestry in the Scottish Borders area, please do get in touch.
