The Scottish Forestry Strategy (2019)


The core principles of Scottish Forestry Strategy s are based on sustainable development and social inclusion, achieved through a culture of ‘forestry for and with people’ and delivered in well managed forests and woodlands that integrate effectively with other land uses and businesses. The Scottish Executive’s first integrated framework for the long-term development of forestry in Scotland, Forests for Scotland - The Scottish Forestry Strategy was published in 2000. Changes at international and national levels indicated the need for a review that was completed in 2006 and highlighted a number of important opportunities and challenges for forestry in the 21st century. This Strategy sets out a vision and a process for realising the potential of forestry through the 21st century, with a particular focus on the next decade. The Implementation Plan 2013-2016 and the Progress Report 2012-2013 are also available
